A very quick look at EU elections. With the important exceptions of the UK, Netherlands and Portugal, turnout, which was overall low, was above average in western Europe. It was very disappointing in eastern Europe (would be curious if there is divide between east and west Germany). For what regards Portugal, I am puzzled. Official numbers put the number of electors at 9.456.201 on the national territory (excluding Portuguese abroad). With a resident population above 18 of approximately 8.4 millions (an upper bound on the number of electors) it looks like Portugal should clean the electoral lists.
