Confusion surrounds Iraq poll turnout

Apparently 72% of total registered voters turning out is a WRONG number. I was going to say. How the...?

Confusion surrounds turnout statistics in Iraq's election, with the country's election commission backtracking on a statement that 72% had voted and top politicians insisting the turnout was high.

When I was hearing these numbers I was thinking, is my family the only one that didn't vote? How can this be? So this number is a "word-of-mouth estimate" actually. How can somebody give "word-of-mouth estimates" of this poll? That is one of the most ridiculous things I've heard in a while.
