MABB © ®


This is the official result from the referendum to approve the new Bolivian Oruro constitution. The electoral agency has counted 100% of the votes.


This graph is La Razon's reporting of the national and departmental results. We can see that only four departments rejected the constitution, while five others, including Sucre and Cochabamba, voted YES.

The results on the land tenure questions are reported as well.

One result deserving attention is the participation rate of 90.26%. This is got to be some kind of record!

Yes it would seem like a record but since voting is OBLIGATORY here it's not really.

That generally doesn't mean much in Bolivia. One can still do things without your voting card.

However, this is the first time 90% is reached. I am guessing it is because people "wanted" to vote and not because they "had" to vote.
