The turnout figures for the Assembly election in West Tyrone and Mid Ulster have revealed record low figures.
A total of 39,325 people voted from an eligible electorate of 65,694 in West Tyrone – a turnout of 59.86%.
The number is well down on the 64% who voted in the 2011 Assembly election, but represents a steady declining trend in recent polls. Turnout in West Tyrone was just over 61% for last year’s Westminster campaign.
The 59.86% appears to be one of the highest across the North, with only Fermanagh & South Tyrone looking like polling any higher.
Mid Ulster Has similarly witnessed a slump in turnout. Just 41,381 voted there on Thursday, a turnout of 58.75%. Again a record low.
Mid Ulster has traditionally experienced the highest turnout figures for the North during successive election.
