Election results

As expected, the ANC won a large victory with 63.6% of the vote (with 80% counted thus far).  However, this is a bit less than the 67% they won back in 2006.  The opposition Democratic Alliance drastically increased their support from 14 to 22.1%.  Given that Coloureds (mixed race) and whites make up about 9% each of the population, clearly the DA's play for the black vote had at least some success.
