Jaide had brought the incorrect document, as she had left her ID at home and carried her driver’s licence with her. When she heard that she couldn’t vote, her heart sank and she started bawling her eyes out.

She captioned her video:

“When you drive an hour to come vote but you can’t vote with your driver's only ID. I feel like such an idiot and I am so upset with myself.”

Mistakes happen

Jaide was a total mess when she was sent away after all of the effort she had gone to to get to her voting station:

“Guys, please don’t be like me and vote with your driver’s license. I did not know that I needed my ID and now I can’t vote. We drove all the way from Pretoria and I’m so upset. I stood in a queue for an hour and now I can’t vote because I saw somewhere that you can vote with your driver’s license.”
