45.65% of Catalan voters have gone to the polls until 6 pm, according to data published by the Generalitat with half of the tables counted. This percentage represents a drop of more than 22 points compared to the second advance in participation in the 2017 elections, when at this same time 68.26% of the electorate had voted. It should be remembered that, due to the exceptional situation in which this day is celebrated, since the schools have opened until 12 o’clock it was expected that the risk groups would vote, one of the reasons that could be behind this reduction in the participation, as explained by the Minister for Foreign Action and Institutional Relations, Bernat Solé.
The participation data at 1:00 pm today had already represented the lowest attendance since there are records in Catalonia. This data has been confirmed at 6pm, when the lowest attendance record in Catalonia was set again, with the exception of 2006, when it was 4 tenths below today’s.
By provinces, the one that falls the most is Tarragona, which remains at a 42% share, followed by Barcelona, which marks 45.9%, when in 2017 it was the most mobilized territory. This year, on the other hand, the province that most turned out to vote was Girona, with 47.3% participation at 6pm, followed by Lleida (46.4%).
