Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Seemed to be low according to the numbers posted for 14:00, at 36%, 5 percentage points below the level of 2005 (when final participation was at 77%).

Postal voting, which is expected to be more significant this time around, was not considered.

Poor turnout on election day should bode ill for the SPD, but DER SPIEGEL speculates that the number could still turn around as it's a pretty day across Germany. Which reminds me that I should go outside for a few hours.

The first projections are expected at 18:00, if there's no twitter leak before that point.
