A gay rights referendum in Slovakia has been ruled invalid after it failed to attract big enough voter turnout.

Conservatives were hoping to strengthen a ban on gay marriages and child adoptions by same-sex couples. However partial results showed only 21.07 percent of voters cast their ballots.

In Slovakia, a minimum of 50 percent is necessary to validate a vote.
