INDONESIA POLLS: Early indication of voting trend by late afternoon
Publication Date : 09-07-2014
Voting in Indonesia's presidential election begins today at 7am (Indonesian time) and ends at 1pm.
An early indication of how the vote goes can be expected by late afternoon, based on "quick counts" carried out by several polling agencies.
Although the official results will be announced only on July 21 or 22, these "quick counts" - based on a sample of results from some 2,000 polling stations - have proven accurate in previous elections, by up to 0.5 percentage point.
The tally from the polling agencies will be updated throughout the day.
