Okay, here’s an idea. During European elections the individual polling stations put up their turn out figures at 12 noon, 5pm and 9pm. The idea here is that people report back the figures they see at their local stations and any others they may have visited. Please make sure you are certain of the figures… I will open another thread for discussion of these figures so that we can use this one purely as a data dump! So no comments please, just your numbers!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.
Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.
While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.
If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
