Voter turnout in the November Spanish election for Catalonia was at 72.17%, a fall of 2.3% compared to the numbers seen in April's election. 

For all of Spain, participation was 69.88%, which was a fall of almost six points compared to the last general election in Spain (75.75%.)

Pedro Sánchez and the Socialists won the most seats in the election, but lost three compared to April's results, leaving the political deadlock in place. 

Elsewhere, the pro-independence bloc celebrated their best ever results in a Spanish election, winning a combined 23 seats.

Turnout in Catalonia hit 40,6% by 2 pm, down by 3% from the previous election in April for the same time in the afternoon. In Spain as a whole, participation has decreased by 3.6% to 37.9%.

Figures at 6 pm confirmed the negative tendency, with voter turnout falling by 4% both in Catalonia (59.8%) and in Spain (56.8%) from the previous April election.
