Poll: How did you vote yesterday?
Or did you vote at all? Let us know in today’s poll.

THE BALLOT BOXES are being cracked open and the polling stations have already resumed normal duties as schools, sports clubs and hospitals after yesterday’s fiercely contested referendum on the Fiscal Compact.

Despite the busy campaigning, it looks like turnout was even lower than expected at polling booths. As we await the first count results, we’d like to hear from all those who did – and didn’t – vote.

So, in today’s poll we’re asking: How did you vote yesterday?

Poll Results:

No (2596)
Yes (2249)
I couldn't vote (e.g. living abroad etc.) (877)
I chose not to vote (523)
I spoiled my vote (39)
