Turnout by noon higher than in 2011 election

Croatians went to the polls on Sunday in large numbers to vote for a new parliament, and 685,837 did so by 11:30 hours, the State Election Commission (DIP) said.

The information on the turnout came from 85% of the polling stations where around 3.2 million voters are registered. That means that of that number, 21.5% cast their ballots by 11:30 hours, said DIP chair Branko Hrvatin.

The turnout by noon was higher than in the 2011 parliamentary elections when 566,000 or 16.4% of eligible voters went to the polls by noon.
