A total of 5,956 polling stations closed at 22:00 across Slovakia ending the country’s one-day general election, the eighth democratic vote to select members of parliament since the fall of communism in 1989. The only polling station which will close later will be the one in Šoporňa, the TASR newswire reported.

The first preliminary results of the vote will be available on the website of the Slovak Statistics Office between 22:30 and 22:45 and will be updated as vote counts from regional precincts arrive. Relevant preliminary results covering data from over 95 percent of the precincts should be known during Sunday, probably in the afternoon, the SITA newswire reported.

The Slovak Spectator will be updating the election results on its webpage simultaneously with information coming from the Statistics Office.

The election was supervised by the Central Election Committee (ÚVK), as well as about 7,000 police officers. Both said that the election was calm and that there were no major disturbances.

Lívia Škultétyová from the ÚVK said that the polling station in Šoporňa will be closed later because they started about 10 minutes later than the rest of the polling stations around the country, the TASR newswire reported.
