Registration of Voters



For the organisation and holding of elections, the following voter lists shall be compiled:
  1. the list voters of the Republic of Lithuania;
  2. lists of voters of constituencies; and
  3. lists of voters of polling districts.
The procedure for compiling voter lists must be such that every person who is entitled to vote shall be registered in voter lists. No one may be registered in a voter list more than once.

All persons who have the right to vote shall be registered in the voter list of the Republic of Lithuania according to the data of issuance of the passport, identity card or a permit for permanent residence in the Republic of Lithuania, and according to the population register of the Republic of Lithuania. Public institutions which issue documents confirming the identity of a person, keep the data pertaining to the declaration of persons' place of residence, register the deaths of persons and the loss of citizenship, shall be also responsible for accurate and timely recording of relevant changes and verifications in the population register of the Republic of Lithuania. Lists compiled according to the data of the population register of the Republic of Lithuania shall be provisional.

Not more than 7 days prior to the election, Central Electoral Committee approves final voter lists with changes. Changes in final voter lists may be done only with consent of the Central Electoral Committee.

Every voter not later than 20 days before election day should receive a voter certificate. A voter certificate is a document issued by an electoral committee specifying in the voter list of which electoral district a voter is registered. One cannot vote by post without this certificate. A voter certificate contains the name and surname, the birth date, the address of the voter, the town, region in which the voter shall cast his vote and other important information to the voter.
