In Slovakia the elections to the European Parliament are taking place on June 6, following the tradition that most elections in the country are scheduled on a Saturday. Polling stations opened at 7:00 am and will remain open until 10:00 pm when Slovaks are invited to elect their 13 representatives to the European Parliament.

In Slovakia, 16 political parties have sent a total of 184 candidates to the EP elections.

The Central Election Commission will not release the results until polling stations close in the last EU member state, which will be on Sunday, June 7 at 22:00. The Slovak Statistics Office will publish the results on www.statistics.sk as well as on www.volbysr.sk.

A survey conducted by the TNS polling agency on behalf of the EP in early May showed that Slovaks might once again be the EU’s least-interested voters, as only 12 percent of them said they were sure to vote, the SITA newswire reported.
