Rome, February 25 - Voter turnout in the Italian
general election is trending above 75%, which is still well
below average, according to data released soon after polls
closed Monday afternoon.
Turnout for the two-day vote, which began Sunday, was
running at 75.41% for the lower house, with less than two-thirds
of results in.
In the previous election in 2008, about 81.03% of eligible
voters cast their ballots.
In the Senate vote, turnout was slightly lower, at about
74.47%, below the 80.77% figure from 2008.
Early results were very similar in regional balloting,
conducted at the same time as the general election.
In the regions of Lombardy, Lazio and Molise, turnout by
late Monday afternoon was about 74.88%, up from the 64.46%
recorded in previous years.
Numerous local governments, especially in the Lombardy
region, have been roiled by bribery and corruption scandals in
the past year.
If exit polls prove correct, Italy's center left should
have a working majority in parliament that will enable it to
govern the country, a senior member of the alliance said Monday
after early exit polls put it ahead in both houses.
