Austrian Election to Be Decided by Absentee Ballots, APA Says

Austria’s presidential election won’t be decided before as many as 900,000 absentee ballots are counted Monday because results tallied from Sunday’s voting will be too close to call, the Austria Press Agency said, citing pollster ARGE Wahlen.

Austria’s populist Freedom Party candidate, Norbert Hofer, and his Green Party-backed opponent, Alexander Van der Bellen, are statistically tied in the race to become the country’s president, according to projections by ARGE Wahlen and public broadcaster ORF.
