High Turnout For Leadership Election

With just about an hour to go before the Liberal Democrat Leadership Election result is announced we know thatturnout is 72%. This is up 10% since the last election in 1999.

As I posted yesterday I’m not sure that a high turnout will help Chris Huhne as a lot of the non-political anoraks in of the party will have turned out to vote. I said this may have suited Simon and may mean that against early expectations, from a large number of people, and survive the first round of ballots which then leads into interesting ground. After all you have to be in it to win it at the last stage.

Anyway we’ll know soon enough.
