Pre-Election Silence Begins

Election silence ahead of the parliamentary, provincial and local votes in Serbia began at midnight on June 18 and lasts until polling places close at 8 p.m. on June 21.

Election propaganda, public rallies and forecasts of election results are all banned during election silence.
There may be no symbols or propaganda materials of contenders in the election within 50 meters of polling stations during election silence.

On the day of the election itself, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on June 21, there may be reports on where candidates voted, but not of what they said.

Broadcasts may also be made of information on the turnout and of videos by the responsible government agencies and non-governmental organizations informing citizens how and when they may vote.

There are 21 party or coalition tickets in the running, vying to cross the three-percent threshold of the turnout and win a seat in the Serbian parliament.

There are 6,583,665 citizens in Serbia eligible to vote at 8.386 polling places.
