Spain says most potential voting stations for Catalan vote closed

MADRID (Reuters) - Most public buildings that were intended to be used as polling stations in Sunday’s disputed referendum on Catalan independence have been closed, Spain’s Interior Ministry said on Saturday.

Only “some” potential voting stations were being occupied by people bent on obstructing police efforts to enforce a court order barring public buildings from being used for Sunday’s planned vote, the ministry said in a statement.
