Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Great work, Nomad. Really colossal. Thanks.

Do people usually vote a lot in the evening? In other words, is 39% in mid-afternoon a good participation level?

There's often a spike in the evening. Check out the new participation level: 2 percent below 2003 participation.

I just heard on radio that the Internet Voting Compass are still massively visited: the undecideds are starting to feel the pinch of the deadline.

That's more than I expected. To give an overview:

Election Turnout

  1. 79,9%
  2. 79,0%
  3. 73,2%
  4. 78,7%
  5. 80,3%

If we manage 78% it's pretty neat, I think.

(I will be part of the 22%, though, something about voting from abroad and not being informed by the govt.)

I just voted 20 minutes ago (in a referendum which is at the same time as the elections) and there was a very long line.

You have a normal feeling for a moment, then it passes. --More--
