Abstract

The Independent Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) commissioned the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) in late 2010 to conduct two studies related to the 2011 Municipal Elections: firstly, a Voter Participation Survey (VPS), which was conducted in November and December 2010; and secondly, an Election Satisfaction Survey (ESS) conducted on the day of the elections - 18 May. In this article, Jare Struwig, Ben Roberts, Udesh Pillay and Elme Vivier present general findings from the Election Satisfaction Survey.
