4.285 Million to vote at Indyref

4.285 million electorate is confirmed.

Up from the March 2014 estimate by the General Registars for Scotland of 4,120,494 electors.

121,276 of that may be the 16 and 17 year olds and at least 40,000 voters have been added presumably as a result of canvassing campaigns.

Previous Turnouts at elections/referendums.

63.8% 2010 UK General Election (Scotland)
63.8% 1979 Scottish Devolution Referendum
60.4% 1997 Scottish Devolution Referendum

65% Turnout – 2.78 Million voters
70% Turnout – 2.99 Million voters
75% Turnout – 3.21 Million voters
80% Turnout – 3.43 Million voters
85% Turnout – 3.64 Million voters

So, our numbers game could be.

4,285,343 electors.

80% as a turnout (3,428,274)

and to win, either side needs 1,714,137. That’s the 50%

Is the yes declaration at 1.4 Million as suggested? An additional 315,000 to hit 50% possibly?
