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 15 in nearly 3,000 municipalities. Polling stations are open between 7:00 and 20:00.

As many as 14 municipalities will not have a complete municipal parliament as candidates are lacking, five municipalities have no mayoral candidates and three municipalities will not have any parliamentary candidates.

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.

Polling stations will close at 20:00 and unofficial results will be gradually published after that time. The results can be found at www.statistics.sk and www.volbysr.sk.

The Slovak Spectator will post updated information about the results on its website.
