Who is winning italian general election 2013?

10:56 Reported queues at polling stations in the city of Milan and Emilia

10:00 The leader of the Movement 5 Stars, Beppe Grillo, yet did not appear at his seat in to vote. Yesterday, the first day of voting, dozens of reporters and photographers have been waiting in vain.

9:39 A man of 39 years of Turin has been charged by police after being caught photographing the ballot in a polling station with the phone, which was seized.

7:00 Reopened seats throughout Italy. Closes at 15. After the counting will begin, which will cover first the Senate and then the House. The scrutiny of the regional will begin tomorrow.


Starting from this morning at 8 am (7 am GMT) polls are open for the Italian General Elections to renew House of Representatives and Senate. There are also 3 gubernatorial elections in three of the 20 Italian regions: Lombardy, Lazio e Molise. The electors for the House of Representatives are 47.011.309 (all Italian citizens living in Italy and above 18 years old), while for the Senate will vote 43.071.494 (all Italian citizens living in Italy and above 25 years old). 618 deputes and 309 senators will be elected this way. The Italian citizens living abroad that can cast a vote for the House of Representatives are 3.438.670 and for the Senate 3.103.887 will elect 12 deputes e 6 senators for an overall of 630 members of the House of Representative and 315 members of Senate. Polls will be opened the 24th from 8am to 10pm (7am-pm GMT) and the 25th of February from 7am to 3pm (6am-2pm GMT). then the polls will be opened and there will be the count and therefore the seats distributions in the two chambers. Affluence will be the key, in Italy usually vote around 80% of electorate in this case the turnout could be sensibly lower.

24.00 Here there is the affluence at 10pm (9pm GMT). According to previous check, it seems many strongholds of Mr. Berlusconi are suffering the worst results in affluence reports. On the other side, the most left-oriented areas of Italy are showing better results. In this scenario you have to consider the Mr. Grillo factor, that may break the equilibrium between the classic country political coalitions.

20.00 Here there is the affluence at 7pm (6pm GMT). According to the distribution of affluence it seems that Berslusconi coalition can have a odd result. Many strongholds of Berlusconi suffer a bad affluence while the other places appear to be steady in terms of affluence.

Our projection expects a final turnout between 75% and 80%. New projections in the coming hours will show whether there is a recovery or a further decline.

10:55. Let’s remind how to vote. Just make a mark in the box of the chosen list or coalition. Two ballots are available, a pink one for the House and a yellow one for the Senate. The voting law is the “Porcellum”. Preferences votes can not be expressed. This law gives a majority premium to the winning list or coalition. It is an important election that could bring big changes, and Termometro Politico is here to follow it closely.
