"The election posed a logistical nightmare for the IEC, which had to accommodate the IFP's last-minute decision to participate in the elections and add the party's name to the ballots." Source: U.S. Library of Congress
The National & Provincial ballots were printed before the election. Inclusion of the IFP candidate meant that just days before the election, rolls of stickers were printed with the IFP party information & candidate image. These were to be attached by poll workers before distribution to each voter. Since our ballots never arrived at the polls, the IFP candidate stickers were never attached to these original ballots. We hand-apply each IFP sticker individually to proximate as nearly as possible the condition and intensity of the moment when ballots were handed to first time voters.
