Abstract: The intention of the survey was to ascertain the degree to which voters consider the poll to have been conducted in a manner that is free and fair to all voters and political parties. The poll focused on the following issues: the extent to which various logistical matters impacted on voter participation, an assessment by voters of the free and fairness of the elections - including possible levels if intimidation. The study method comprised brief (5-minute) interviews with randomly selected voters exiting from the 214 selected voting stations. Voters were asked sixteen questions concerning their experiences on election day. The prime target population was therefore individuals aged 18+ who reside in South Africa and who were registered to vote in the 1999 national elections and voted. As voters exited these voting stations they were interviewed.
