Voter Turnout Trends Emerge in Croatian Parliamentary Elections: As Croatia holds its parliamentary elections, early data from the State Electoral Commission (SEC) reveals interesting trends in voter turnout. By Wednesday morning, a total of 747,986 voters had cast their ballots, marking a significant increase from previous elections. Notably, electoral units 1, 3, and 6 saw the highest turnout percentages, while units 5, 9, and 10 recorded the lowest. Regionally, Varaždin exhibited the highest turnout among county residents, contrasting with lower figures in Slavonski Brod and Dubrovnik. Despite logistical challenges and a reduced electorate compared to previous years, the election process proceeds, with the SEC slated to announce further turnout updates later today.
