So far, 20,180 Lithuanian citizens resident abroad have registered to vote in the upcoming parliamentary elections, according to Monday figures from the Central Electoral Commission.

Registration is still open and will close at different times in different countries. One can also vote at Lithuania's diplomatic representations and register on the election day.

For the first time, expatriate Lithuanians will be voting in a separate constituency to elect their own representative. In previous elections, their votes would be added to one constituency in Vilnius.

Lithuania will elect a new parliament on October 11, with the run-off vote on October 25.
