Where and how to vote :
General voting :
** Voters on the electoral register usually vote at the polling station where they have their permanent residence.
** Local electoral commissions will send voters notifications about the number and location of the polling station, and about the serial number for their entry in the electoral register.
** The notification is for information only and voters are not required to bring it to the polling station.
** Voters who have not received a notification should go to the polling station where their family members vote, or the polling station that is closest to their place of residence.
** We should point out that these notifications are sent to the place of permanent residence and not to any place of temporary residence.
** The chairperson or a member of the election committee will determine the voter’s identity using any personal identification document that shows the voter’s personal data.

Early voting :
** Voters who are absent on polling day may vote early at a special polling station at the headquarters of the local electoral commission, but no earlier than five days prior to polling day and no later than two days prior to polling day.
** Voters may vote early only at the local electoral commission in the area where they are listed in the electoral register (at the administrative unit where they are registered as permanent residents).
** The chairperson or a member of the election committee will determine the voter’s identity using any personal identification document that shows the voter’s personal data.

Postal votes within Slovenia :
The following persons may vote by post:
** those in the care of a home for the elderly who do not have permanent residence at the home;
** voters who are being treated at hospitals or health spas;
** voters who on polling day are in a penal institution.

** Notification of the intention to vote by post must be sent to the local electoral commission or the constituency electoral commission ten days prior to polling day.
** The notification form for postal votes can be obtained from the institution in which the voter is located or on the state election commission website.

Voting at home :
** Voters who through illness cannot vote in person at the polling station where they are listed in the electoral register can vote before the election committee in their homes.
** This intention must be communicated to the local electoral commission no later than three days before polling day.

Notification can be sent in the following ways :
** by post to the address of the local electoral commission;
** by fax to the number of the local electoral commission;
** by e-mail (signed and scanned) to the e-mail address of the local electoral commission;
** by telephone (notification of the local electoral commission).

All information about local electoral commissions can be found on the state election commission website.

Voting outside the district of permanent residence – “OMNIA” :
Such polling stations can be used by:
a) Voters who on polling day will be away from the district where they are registered as permanent residents :
** Local electoral commissions will determine the OMNIA polling station where voters from another place can vote (e.g. a voter from Maribor wishes to vote in Ljubljana).
** Voters who will be away from their location of permanent residence on polling day and who wish to vote at a polling station outside their district of permanent residence, must communicate their intention to the local electoral commission.

Voters can give notice of their intention on the form published on the website dvk-rs.si.
Notice can be sent :
** by post to the address of the local electoral commission;
** by fax to the number of the local electoral commission;
** by e-mail (signed and scanned) to the e-mail address of the local electoral commission.

** Voters must send such notice no later than three days before polling day.
** The deadline for giving notice is preclusive, meaning the deadline refers to when the notice must arrive.
** Notices received late will be rejected as submitted too late.
** Voters who have notified the local electoral commission that they wish to vote at a polling station outside the area of their own local electoral commission (at an OMNIA polling station), should present themselves between 7 am and 7 pm on polling day at the special polling station in the location they have chosen.
** The chairperson or a member of the election committee will determine the voter’s identity using any personal identification document that shows the voter’s personal data.

b) Slovenian citizens who do not have permanent residence in Slovenia (emigrated Slovenians) and who wish to vote on polling day at a polling station in Slovenia.
