Increase voter turnout in Poland, check.

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

Just in from the AP regarding Sunday’s election in Poland:

A hard-fought campaign generated voter turnout of 52.6 percent, higher than any parliamentary elections since the fall of communism in 1989, according to an exit survey conducted by the PBS DGA polling institute. The high turnout caused some polling stations to run out of ballots and stay open longer than scheduled, delaying the release of the first exit polls for hours.

We noted here earlier that the voter turnout in the last Polish election was around 40%.

I think weekend voting would make the most sense, as people wouldn't have tu run home after work or wake up early to hit the polling stations beforehand.
