Early voting dates for Latvia's local elections

For voters who are unable to vote on the official election day, June 5, early voting will be open on May 31,  June 3 and 4, said the Central Election Commission (CVK) May 25. 

This option is particularly desirable for voters who are in a Covid-19 risk group, since there are typically fewer voters on earlier days.

Unlike previous elections, this year, the voting hours will be longer and the first day of voting will be Monday, May 31, when polling stations will open between 16:00 and 20:00. It will also be the first day that the new voting register solution – an electronic online voter register – will be tried in real time in all polling stations, which will enable voters to vote in any of the stations in their polling area by presenting an identification document.

On Tuesday June 1 and on Wednesday June 2, polling stations will not be open.

The vote will resume on Thursday, June 3, when the working time of the polling stations will be between 9:00 and 16:00, and on Friday, June 4, 13:00 to 20:00.

The working hours of polling stations on the election day, June 5, will be 7:00 to 20:00.

More information about local elections is available on CVK website.

CVK has also produced animated videos on the procedure of voting in Covid-19 circumstances.
