Dick tells in a tweet that at 4 pm 22% of Dutch voted, which looks similar to 2004.
Since July 2008, I have been following up national and European activities on the path to the EP elections under the category "European parliament elections 2009".
For an overview over all articles in this category have a look at the overview article.
