The Government has developed a website and a specific mobile application to follow live the results of the elections to the Spanish Parliament on July 23rd, which will be available from tomorrow, Friday.
23J election results
The website https://resultados.generales23j.es, which will be available from 13.00 hours tomorrow, and the mobile app 23J General Elections 2023, which can be downloaded in the Android and iOS platforms markets, will offer users real-time information on the entire process. Specifically, it will be possible to access the data on the constitution of the polling stations, the participation rates recorded during the election day and the provisional results at the closing of the polling stations.
The platform offers users the possibility of carrying out their own simulations of a pact between the different forces that obtain representation in Congress. From the provisional results, both the web and the app give access to a simulator in which users can test different formulas for the sum of blocks that the user can save and edit to make as many tests as desired.
The section on the constitution of polling stations offers graphs on the number of polling stations constituted and the percentage it represents of the total number of existing polling stations, as well as statistics on the census. The data that will be offered will allow access to both the national total and its breakdown by autonomous communities and provinces.
The space on the website reserved for Participation Advances will show the advance of these statistics available at 14:00 and 18:00 on election day, as well as their comparison with the same time slots in the 2019 general elections. As in the previous block, the data will also be available by autonomous communities and provinces in a drop-down menu or through an interactive map of Spain that allows you to click directly on the desired autonomous community.
From 9 p.m., after the closing of the polling stations in the Canary Islands, the web page and the mobile application will start to disseminate the first results of the scrutiny in the different polling stations, which can be consulted in real-time from the section of Provisional Results which, in turn, is displayed in Congress and Senate. Both subsections show the graph of the composition of the chamber according to the incoming data, the list of representation by parties and the votes received by each one, both in absolute and percentage terms.
The graphs will show the distribution of the 350 deputies and 208 senators that will be elected throughout the national territory, including a comparison with the results of the last elections of 2019. From the search engine, it will also be possible to access the data of autonomous communities and provinces that the user will be able to save in his Favorites section to consult their evolution as more information becomes available.
A space included in the results section will allow the user to make specific queries by candidates to know the number of votes per party or grouping, the representatives obtained in each case and the percentage of votes obtained over the total votes cast.
The final participation rate at the closing of the polling stations will be another of the items included in both the web and the app, with the abstention data and the figures of votes cast, valid, blank and invalid votes in each province and autonomous community, as well as their comparison with the general elections of 2019.
Live press conferences
The usual press conferences on election day can be followed via streaming through the mobile application and the election results website. On Sunday, July 23, the first intervention will be at 10:30 a.m. to inform about the beginning of the election day and the constitution of the polling stations; at 2:30 p.m. the first advance of participation will be offered; and the second one, at 6:30 p.m.
At around 10:30 p.m., the Minister of Territorial Policy and Government Spokesperson, Isabel Rodríguez, and the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, will be broadcast streaming to offer the provisional results.
