61.5% of those who voted on the senate issue...but when the abstainers are considered as "no" votes, then the issue didn't pass.

You can't exactly call ignorance that there was another issue on the table that was supposed to be voted on a choice of abstinance.

I met tons of people after they had voted that stared at me with a blank face when I asked them why they have only voted for one issue.

Also, I asked them if they put their ballot in the correct box!!

The UDPs advertised position was that you shouldn't vote on that issue as it didn't describe how the elected senate would be created. So now they (UDP) are saying that those abstaining did so as a planned boycott of that issue.

Many people I talked to didn't vote because they weren't informed at the polling station that they could or how to do it. You had to ask for a ballot to vote on the issue.
