Some evidence that Vox voters may be turning out in force
I need more information before I'm convinced. I'm really not sure that Vox will be as successful as some are imagining, if they overtake Podemos to take 5th place, I'll be gobsmacked. Plus, comparing turnout between regional and national elections seems a little dodgy to me.

WJ- I share your suspicion of those figures, as El Pais say turnout has increased only 1.43% compared to the last general election. If Vox are to have their surge, I expect they need Andalucia to turn out.
On that note, every region was up on last time at the 2pm check. Catalonia at 11.21% up, but over 5% increases in the Basque Country, Navarre, Asturias, Aragon and the North African colonies.
"People may say what they like about the decay of Christianity; the religious system that produced green Chartreuse can never really die."
This chap says that Cordoba and Jaen (both in Andalusia) are the only provinces not to see increased turnout. Not regions, provinces. Of which there are fifty.
Was about to share that. I would like to see a map of absolute numbers, I have a feeling that the increase in turnout in Catalonia is mostly a recovery to normality after much lower turnout in 2016. Might be wrong on that though?
Most polls seem to be showing the following: PSOE well above 100 PP down almost half C's just ahead of Podemos Vox in a strong 5th
No majority for either bloc, Sanchez favoured to continue governing with the support of separatists. His best case scenario involves just working with the Basque Nationalists, CC and other softer regionalist groupings.
