Municipal elections for residents of Slovakia to elect their mayors and local council members
for the next four years are being held on Saturday, November 27. Polling stations are open
between 7:00 and 20:00.
Over 4 million voters are eligible to cast ballots in the municipal elections. State citizenship is
not a requirement; a permanent address in Slovakia provides the right to vote in the municipal
elections. Foreigners with a permanent address in Slovakia can cast their ballots in the
municipality in which they hold residence.
To vote in the municipal elections, foreigners (as well as Slovak citizens) must be 18 or older
and have permanent residence status in Slovakia, said Michal Kaliňák, the spokesperson of
the Association of Towns and Villages of Slovakia (ZMOS).
Polling stations will close at 20:00 and unofficial results will be gradually published after that
time. The Slovak Spectator will post updated information about the results on its website.
