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.

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.
