The UE Santboiana rugby club from Sant Boi de Llobregat near Barcelona had played a game in Vilajoiosa (Alicante) that day. On their bus journey home they stopped at Alcanar, the first town inside Catalonia, so that whoever wanted to could vote. They entered the polling station to applause from the locals who chanted "You will vote!"
We have voted.
