Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Do people spoil their ballots as a protest very much?  Or is that a normal percentage?

I mentioned the figure because I was surprised how high it was. But it is easy to spoil a ballot with 20 candidates. All you have to do is skip a number - 1,2,3,5 and all preferences thereafter are void. Bad hand writing creating ambiguity also can void a ballot. Perhaps a small % spoil their vote deliberately, but why bother to show up in that case? It's not as if there isn't quite a wide choice. In the recent general election the spoiled vote total was less that 1%.

I agree, it seems like a high number. I thought there might have been some reason for it. Maybe not.
