Slovaks will elect their new president in the second round of the presidential election. The election is down to two names: Zuzana Čaputová and Maroš Šefčovič.
The polling stations opened at 7:00 and will close at 22:00.
The official results are expected to be published on March 31, after they are confirmed by the Central Election Committee.
The Slovak Spectator will be posting updates on its website during the night and after the official results are confirmed.
Apart from the elections, Slovaks can also attend Earth Hour, which starts at 20:30. Moreover, the change to summer time (meaning the clock should be set to one hour forward, from 2:00 to 3:00) will also take place in the early hours of March 31.
Who can take part in the elections?
Every Slovak citizen who has reached the age of 18 on the day of the elections can vote for the president. Voting is only possible on Slovak territory though.
Slovaks living abroad can take part in the elections, but only if they are in Slovakia on the day they are held. The election committee should inscribe them on the voters’ list and also make a note in their passport, as the law stipulates.
There are about 4.45 million eligible voters.
