Since seven in the morning of December 12, 2021, the people of Caledonia have gone to the polling stations for the third consultation on the referendum. Here are the participation numbers registered at 12 noon.
Once the polls open this morning, we could see a drop in attendance compared to previous referendums. At 12 noon, this trend was confirmed by the rate of participation revealed by the High Commission of the Republic of New Caledonia.
At 12 noon, the estimated turnout was 27.75%. In 2020 at midday, it was 49.40% and 41.81% in 2018. A significant drop. As a reminder, the total number of registered voters for this referendum is 184332 People.
The numbers are fundamentally different from the previous year’s. In 2020, a historic record for turnout was set at midday.
Next post update will be at 5pm.
