JUBA, Sudan — Preliminary results from Southern Sudan's independence referendum indicate a landslide vote for secession, but turnout exceeded 100 percent in several areas, and a top election official said Sunday that some results were being quarantined.

Voter turnout exceeded 100 percent in 10 of the south's 79 counties, according to an analysis done by The Associated Press using information on the Southern Sudan Referendum Commission's website. In Jonglei state's Bor County, the number of votes cast exceeded the number of registered voters by 720.
