Topic: Catalan volunteers labour to make breakaway vote count

With see-through ballot boxes and dozens of electoral workers milling around, the Maristas school in Barcelona is a polling station like any other, with one difference: this vote is forbidden. In other respects, the volunteers at this school near the city's iconic Sagrada Familia Cathedral -- along with 40,000 others across the region -- are doing things by the book. Spain's government mounted legal challenges to Catalonia's independence vote on Sunday, putting the volunteers running the 6,700 polling stations in a delicate spot.
