Methodological note

Definition of concepts

Electoral roll
List of all adult people with the right to vote and that are able to fully utilise their civil and political rights. At present, the electoral roll is a state level archive of all people that have the right to vote and its confection and distribution is the responsibility of the National Institute of Statistics (INE). Prior to every consultation, there is period during which it is on display to the general public in order to rectify any possible errors or make any necessary modifications.
Person that satisfies the legal requirements to be able to exercise their right to vote.
Blank vote
Vote by an elector who, despite exercising their right to vote, does not select any of the options that are presented in the ballot. A vote for any candidate that has been legally withdrawn from the constituency is also considered a blank vote.
Void vote
Vote issued on an unofficial voting slip, that is not in an envelope or when an envelope contains more than one slip, or when the slip contains any kind of comment or modification or does not satisfy the established regulations for elections.
Person who really and effectively exercises their right to vote.

Methodological aspects

The chapter on elections provides detailed information about the last time each type of election was held: European Parliament, general elections for the Congress of Deputies, Parliament of Catalonia, municipal elections and referendums. Also, with respect to previous editions, the results are presented for Catalonia as a whole in order to be able to offer comparable series.

In the tables, only votes for parties that obtained representation are listed, while other parties, coalitions or groups of electors have been grouped as a single category of "others". The list of the different acronyms and meanings of the parties and coalitions that are included among said "others" in all of the tables have not been included in this Annual.

List of the acronyms and names of the candidates that do appear in the tables
CiU Convergència i Unió
ERC Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya
IC-V Iniciativa per Catalunya-Verds
PP Partit Popular
PSC Partit dels Socialistes de Catalunya
C's Ciutadans-Partit de la Ciutadania
SI Solidaritat Catalana per la Independència
CUP Candidatura d'Unitat Popular-Alternativa d'Esquerres
JxSí Junts pel Sí CatSíqueesPot Catalunya sí que es pot

It should be noted that the acronyms used in the table headings do not always correspond exactly to the names different parties or coalitions used in officially standing for elections.

For example, for the elections to the Parliament of Catalonia 2003, Iniciativa per Catalunya Verds stood as a coalition with Esquerra Alternativa to form a candidature called ICV-EA, while the Partit dels Socialistes de Catalunya did so along with Ciutadans pel Canvi, calling their candidature PSC-CIPC. Meanwhile, in the elections to the Congress of Deputies in 2004 ICV stood in coalition with Esquerra Unida i Alternativa to constitute a candidature called ICV-EUiA.

For full details of all of the coalitions and groups, we refer readers to specific publications of an electoral nature.

In the county tables, the different candidatures are ordered from the highest to the lowest number of votes obtained for each of the parties in Catalonia as a whole and for each type of election.
