Indonesia - 80 Percent of Overseas Voters Did Not Vote in Legislative Polls - Jakarta Globe

Jakarta Globe:

The General Elections Commission (KPU) on Thursday announced the results of overseas voting, revealing a large number of registered voters shied away from polling stations during the legislative elections.

According to KPU data, only 329,161 out of 1.5 million registered overseas voters actually exercised their constitutional right. This means almost 80 percent of the eligible voters did not cast their vote. Of the people who did actually vote, 25,279 had their ballots declared invalid.
