UPDATED: Promising early signs from European elections turnout figures

Two different cuts of the early turnout data, both leading to the same conclusion: turnout in the European Parliament elections is up by more the greater the Remain vote was in the area.

Overall, Remain voting areas are seeing higher turnout as well. But that’s less revealing as they usually do. What’s revealing is that the turnout gap seems to have increased this time.

More promising signs too when turnout changes are compared with party support, in particular for the Lib Dems who are currently also seeing a membership surge.

UPDATE: My results coverage for the European elections is here.
