Updates as they come. DosCentavos was the only area blog (and political strategist) to predict an increase in participation in this run-off. As is usually the case, run-off participation can sometimes reduce to half or less of the regular election; however, something told this blogger that things could increase. The final tally isn’t out yet, so, we will have to see.
