Upturn in Early Voting turnout

The Sofia Echo has reported that the turnout for early voting is up around 1.1% in Finland and 1.77% in Sweden. It's not a big increase, but it may indicate a bigger interest in the elections by the public.

Given that the turnout has probably fallen in the UK, and only risen slightly in the Netherlands, there will probably need to be a bigger turnout elsewhere for the EU average to be raised significantly.

Early voting is over in Finland but it will continue in Sweden until the official polling day of the 7th of June.

  1. The early indications seem to be that the decreases and increases could even out over Europe, although we have yet to see what happens in Central Europe, where turnout in the region of 20 per cent is still a distinct possibility in a number of countries.
