The Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) submitted its election observation mission report to the Electoral Commission (IEC) at the end of May 2014. Generally, based on the over-all observations of its attorney observers, the LSSA concluded that the elections were free and fair. IEC voting staff were friendly and helpful and most observers found the organisation of the stations and the handling of issues by IEC officials to be positive, with most issues duly resolved by the voting agents. Most voting stations appeared to be run efficiently and effectively and voters were in good spirits, with a calm and peaceful atmosphere reported at the majority of the stations.
