Rome, February 25 - Voter turnout at Italian
elections were down roughly 6% with respect to the last
elections in 2008, according to the latest data Monday.
An estimated 74.47% of eligible voters cast a ballot in
Senate elections, down from 80.77%, while 74.93% cast votes for
the House, down from 80.65%.
A greater number of Italians are eligible to vote for the
House, where the minimum age limit is 18, compared to 25 for the
Senate.
Analysts had long suspected a smaller showing at this
year's elections citing high voter disaffection with Italian
politics following a spate of scandals and a recession.
Pundits have also pointed to bad weather as a factor.
