Spain votes 2019

Hello and welcome to the Guardian’s live coverage of Spain’s 2019 general election. I’m Patrick Greenfield and I’ll be keeping you up-to-date with the very latest from the third public vote in four years.

Polling stations across the country have been very busy, with 41.49% of eligible voters having cast their votes by 1pm London time. That’s a substantial increase from the last vote, when 36.87% had voted by the same stage. We will have another update on region-specific turnout figures from Spain’s interior ministry shortly.

The prime minister Pedro Sanchez and his Spanish Socialist Workers party (PSOE) are expected to receive the most votes, but that’s not the full story. The far-right Vox party are poised to achieve a national breakthrough and could become kingmakers in a right-wing coalition.

If there’s no decisive outcome, we will most likely do this all over again in a few months.
