Last day to register with Embassy in Canada is April 26th 2024.
All citizens of the Republic of Lithuania residing or temporarily staying abroad, aged 18 or over, who have the right to vote, are entitled and invited to vote in the elections and referendum on the retention of citizenship to be held in May, June and October 2024.
Elections and referendums – which ones and when?
On 12 May, Presidential elections, and a compulsory referendum on the retention of citizenship will be held. Voters who have registered to vote in the Presidential elections will be deemed to have registered for the referendum.
A possible re-vote in the Presidential elections will take place on 26 May.
European Parliament elections are held on 9 June.
On 13 October, regular elections to the Seimas are scheduled, and on 27 October – a possible re-vote in the single-mandate constituency of the Lithuanian World Parliament.
Is it necessary to register in advance to vote abroad?
Yes. All voters who intend to vote abroad by post or in person will need to register in the online registration system: https://www.rinkejopuslapis.lt. You will need to re-register, even if you were previously on the electoral roll abroad. The electronic registration system allows voters who wish to vote abroad to register to vote and be included on the electoral roll of the relevant diplomatic mission or consular office of the Republic of Lithuania within a few minutes. You can register for all elections and referendums at once or for a selection of elections (e.g. if you are temporarily away from Lithuania or if you intend to change your place of residence).
What if I don’t have a valid passport or ID card?
If you have not lost your citizenship of the Republic of Lithuania, but do not have a valid identity document, you can register and vote with an expired passport or identity card.
What are the registration data used for?
The personal data provided during voter registration is used only for the purposes of organising the elections: to draw up lists of citizens of the Republic of Lithuania who vote abroad. The processor of personal data is the Central Electoral Commission of the Republic of Lithuania, legal entity code 188607150, address: Gynėjų g. 8, Vilnius, tel.: +370 5 239 6902, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Personal data are processed by the Chief Electoral Commission of the Republic of Lithuania in the exercise of the public authority functions entrusted to it in accordance with the Election Code of the Republic of Lithuania. For questions concerning the protection of personal data, you can contact the Personal Data Officer Rokas Stabingis, tel. +370 5 239 6423, e-mail: email@example.com.
Until when can I register to vote abroad?
We advise you to register as early as possible, at least by mid-April, especially if you intend to vote by post. Depending on the specifics of the post office in your country of residence, you may be able to register earlier to ensure that the ballot papers reach you and that the returned ballot papers arrive at the Lithuanian Embassy or Consulate in time.
What if I can’t register?
If you are unable to register, please check that you have entered all your personal details correctly – all the required fields must be ticked as stated in your passport or ID card. If you are still unable to register, please contact the Central Electoral Commission of the Republic of Lithuania: Mr. Mindaugas Skačkauskas,
Tel. +370 620 75079, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I vote in person?
In 2024, voting is organised in 52 diplomatic missions and consular posts abroad. Additionally, citizens abroad will be able to vote at the Lithuanian World Centre in Lemont (United States of America) and the Honorary Consulate General of the Republic of Lithuania in Toronto (Canada).
Additional polling stations for 12 May 2024 For the Presidential elections and the referendum on 12 May 2024 on the retention of citizenship, there are polling stations in East London (United Kingdom), Leeds (United Kingdom), Dungannon (United Kingdom), Edinburgh (United Kingdom), Peterborough (United Kingdom), Lisbon (Portuguese Republic) and Tenerife (Kingdom of Spain). The specific addresses of these polling stations will be announced at a later date.
Please note that there are no plans to hold voting at these additional polling stations for the European Parliament elections on 9 June 2024. It is also not yet known whether all these additional polling stations will be open for voting on 13 October 2024. Parliamentary elections are scheduled to take place on 20 October 2018.
For news and information on voting locations and times in the Representations, follow the websites and Facebook accounts of the respective Representation.
What if I live in a country where there is no Lithuanian representation?
In this case, you can vote by post by registering on the electoral roll of the representation that covers your country of residence. For example, Lithuanian citizens living in New Zealand vote on the electoral roll of the Embassy of the Republic of Lithuania in Australia. The list of Lithuanian representations abroad can be found here. Please enter the exact address of your permanent or temporary residence in the foreign country, as this is the address where voting documents will be sent. Be sure to check the requirements for writing the postal address of your place of residence in the foreign country on the relevant websites that provide information about postal services in your country of residence or by visiting the website of the relevant representation.
*The SCC notes that if the voters vote in a country where there is no embassy or consular office of the Republic of Lithuania, the voters themselves have to pay for the return of the voting documents to the embassy or consular office which sent the voting documents. Embassies or consular offices of the Republic of Lithuania shall not be responsible for the reliability of foreign post.
Important information. If you plan to vote by post, please register at www.rinkejopuslapis.lt by the specified date. Depending on the specifics of the country’s post office, these dates vary from one mission to another (the list is constantly being updated). After that, you will not be able to vote by post and will have to come to the representation.
