Spain votes – well, most of it, anyway

So the election has about an hour left to run. Apparently, turn-out is down three points from last time (which actually isn't that bad, considering).

El Periòdic d'Andorra's final poll data from yesterday indicated that Zapatero's PSOE had improved their lead slightly, and that both main parties stand to win more seats in what will be largely the same parliament as the last one. They also predicted a 3.5 point drop in turn-out, which seems to be spot on.

So it looks like Zapatero will be retunred for another four years. While I'm not especially enamoured of the PSOE, this would definitely be the better of the two main choices for governing Spain.

As several other expat bloggers are using the Soitu.es election results widget to track the results, I will too. Thanks to Graeme for spotting it!

Good night, and good luck.
