TWO elderly men have died in separate incidents at Spanish polling stations.

One 92-year-old man collapsed at a Madrid booth when he suffered a heart attack after voting in today’s general election.

Another 78-year-old died in Girona as Spaniards go to the polls for the second time in six months.

Polls suggest no party is likely to win an overall majority of 176 seats.

Early exit polls show the turnout is similar to last December’s general election, with 36.86% of the electorate having voted by 2pm.

The last election failed to produce a government, with months of talks between the parties unable to resolve the deadlock.
