Some interesting statistics from the elections. Sorry I can't link to them, they came in an email.
At 7pm voter turnout was 42.3 per cent across the state. In Kosovo and Metohija specifically(official Serbian name for province of Kosovo), it was 31.6 per cent. I was under the impression Kosovar Albanians had boycotted Serbian elections since at least 1990, if not earlier, so that must only be counting the Kosovar Serb population.
By close of voting the 'estimated turnout' was 47.6 per cent, that's 5 per cent of the population casting their votes in the final hour. So Tomislav Nikolic (30.5 per cent) and Boris Tadic (27.1 per cent) head into the second round in two weeks. Since it's so close (around 105,000 votes), they expect Tadic to win the second round as he 'should' pick up the votes of the first round losing candidates. I hope so. Some more number crunching by b92.
