Styria has voted 

and the ÖVP has got the reward for a disasterous last period in power and an equally disasterous election campaign - the post of provincial governor goes to the SPÖ for the first time in 60 years. The Communist Party of Austria becomes the third largest party in the province, surging from 1% to over 6%. The Greens fare badly, the FPÖ and BZÖ split their remaining votes so that both of them fail the hurdle for representation in the regional assembly. ÖVP-renegade Hirschmann (LH) fails as well. The figures:

SPÖ 41,7% (+9,4) ; 25 assembly seats (+6) ; 5 government seats (+2)
ÖVP 38,7 (-8,6) ; 24 (-3) ; 4 (-1)
KPÖ 6,3 (+5,3) ; 4 (+4)
Grüne 4,7 (-0,9) ; 3 (+0)
FPÖ 4,6 (-7,8) ; 0 (-7) ; 0 (-1)
LH 2,0
BZÖ 1,7

A good analysis [DE] on the weblog of Johannes Rauch, the leader of the Greens in Vorarlberg province.
