Electors vote in Vigo
Electors wait to cast their vote

A number of elections were held in Spain on 27 May 2007:

The results saw few changes overall; most incumbent governments retained their majority, with only a few exceptions. The PP government in the Balearics fell, and a coalition led by PSOE took power.

While the elections were seen as a first indication of how the Spanish general election, 2008 might turn out, the results proved to be inconclusive. In 2003, the PSOE had a slight edge with 34.8 against the PP's 34.3; in this election, the PP had 35.6 to the PSOE's 34.9. Turnout was slightly lower, with 63.8 instead of 67.7 four years earlier.
