The figure is double of what was recorded four years ago when 3.49 percent, or 87,059 people voted, but then early voting took place only two days.

Early voting was extended this year due to the threat of the coronavirus. Moreover, more places for early voting were set up and there was no possibility in some municipalities to vote inside municipal premises, as before.

Voting at home will take place on Friday and Saturday. This year, not only disabled people and those over the age of 70 who are not capable of coming to polling stations are able to vote at home, but also people caring for disabled people and residents infected with or suspected having the coronavirus and people who had contact or came from abroad.

A new Lithuanian parliament will be elected on October 11.
