Note: "E/VAP ratio" is "Enrolled" divided by "Voting Age Population" multiplied by 100. The electoral roll includes all Chileans and foreigners (5-year residence) over the age of 18 on election day (28 October 2012) whose right to vote has not been suspended. The National Statistics Office provides population data estimated for June 30 of each year disaggregated by age. Linear interpolation was applied to obtain the population for election day (28 October 2012).
