Bulgarians living abroad overwhelmingly voted "yes" in the referendum on the introduction of remote electronic voting, which was held simultaneously with the local elections on Sunday.
With 98.3 % of the ballots processed, the figures show that 92.06 % of the votes were in favour of the introduction of remote electronic voting, while only 7.94 % were against.
Voter activity in local elections held in Bulgaria on Sunday was 43.2% as of 16:00 (EET), three hours before polls close, an electoral official has said.
Aleksandar Andreev, spokesperson for the Central Electoral Commission (CEC), told Radio Focus on Monday morning the commission had "no information" about problems with ballot processing, which is done by its municipal subdivisions.
Bulgarians are voting in 2015's local elections on Sunday to pick mayors and municipal councilors.
They are also having their say on electronic voting, which some politicians say will not replace "tradiitonal" election methods but will boost activity and encourage turnout all around the globe, with more than 2 million Bulgarians living outside the country.
President Rosen Plevneliev called on all Bulgarians to vote in the forthcoming referendum on the introduction of remote electronic voting, which is scheduled to take place on October 25.
In an interview for private NOVA TV on Wednesday, Plevneliev reminded that he has championed the holding of such referendum in the past three years.
