Voting turnout in Austria.?

In the regions of Vorarlberg and Styria in Austria voting was compulsory. However this has since been abolished. Can I see what the vote turnout was before and after the compulsory vote was abolished please. Thanks.

Update:

that is, can I see what the voting turnout was in those regions before and after the compulsory vote was abolished.

    I know of no such comparisons but generally speaking the voting goes down from 95% or higher to 85% and lower. In countries that went from compulsory to voluntary voting.

    Austria imposed two censures when it had compulsory voting. These were fines and imprisonment.
