It can be done at any municipality in the country from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.

On Friday, two presidential candidates, economist Gitanas Nauseda and MP Naglis Puteikis, will vote in Vilnius, and MP Mindaugas Puidokas, also running for president, will vote in Kaunas.

During the ongoing election and referenda voters for the first time have more time to vote early as they are given five days instead of two during previous votes.

Two-day voting at home also starts on Friday, and voters over 70 years and those unable to come to vote to polling stations due to health issues can make use of this possibility.

Besides Nauseda, Puteikis and Puodokas, social democratic MEP Vytenis Andriukaitis, philosopher Arvydas Juozaitis, MEP Valentinas Mazuronis, economist Gitanas Nauseda, MPs Mindaugas Puidokas, Naglis Puteikis, Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis, representing the ruling Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union, Ingrida Simonyte, representing the opposition conservative Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats, and and MEP Valdemar Tomasevski, representing the Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania – Christian Families Alliance, also run for president.

Lithuania is now holding early voting in the presidential election and two referenda on reducing the number of lawmakers from 141 to 121 and expanding dual citizenship.

The main voting will start at 7 a.m. and last until 8 p.m. on Sunday. If needed, the presidential run-off will be held on May 26.
