Catalans voted Sunday in an election dubbed crucial for the future of Spain, with polls pointing to a win by separatists who vow to declare the region independent by 2017 .Madrid says Catalonia would drop out of the European Union and eurozone if it broke away from Spain.Mas wants Catalonia to follow the example of Scotland and Quebec in Canada by holding a vote on independence -- though in both those cases most voters chose not to break away.Madrid has blocked Mas's efforts to hold a straight referendum so the Catalan leader has framed Sunday's election for the regional parliament as an indirect vote on secession. Polls ahead of Sunday's vote showed the conservative Mas and his left-wing allies in the pro-independence list "Together For Yes" could win a majority of the 135 seats in parliament and nearly half the votes overall.
