Slightly below 3.8 million Croatians are eligible to vote in the forthcoming parliamentary elections, set for 8 November.

According to a decision signed by Public Administration Minister Arsen Bauk, the electoral rolls, which were finalised on 30 October, include a total of 3,791,341 entries. Of those entries, 3,755,065 are voters with permanent residence in Croatia.

Considering voters living abroad, 21,632 Croatian voters living in Bosnia and Herzegovina have registered themselves for casting their ballots in that country,  In Germany, 5,882 voters have already registered themselves for Croatia's parliamentary polls, and 1,040 in Serbia. Requests for registration for voting are submitted to Croatian embassies and consulates no later than 10 days before an election.

The number of eligible voters for the 8 November parliamentary elections is similar to the statistics from the last presidential election when 3,779,281 Croatians aged 18 or over were entitled to vote in that election.

About 7,000 polling stations will be opened in Croatia and abroad for voting in the forthcoming elections. A total of 6,574 polling stations will be opened in Croatia and 114 abroad, namely in 48 countries where Croatian citizens not resident in Croatia and those who happen to be outside Croatia on election day will be able to cast their ballot.
