66. Fascinating, and also weird...
Here in Spain (pop. some 44 million), well before dawn of the day following an eleccin (usually held on a Sunday or other non-working day), some 99% of votes have been counted and the results down to precinct level are posted on the Interior Ministry's web site (more or less) as they are counted. The last few, maybe contested, precincts are posted as they come in.

So, we never have to ask where is the data?

Yes, I've felt a bit worried at times (during the Ansar regime ;) ) about the Interior Ministry running the election - but at every level there are observers from all parties (and there are many).

And, of course, at the first clear sign of lies and/or corruption of this process we all know what would happen...

Our last civil war was not that long ago.
