Simonyte won around 61 percent of the vote in her constituency in Vilnius, according to preliminary figures from the Central Electoral Commission.

MP Olsevski and Salcininkai District Vice-mayor Petkevic garnered almost 53 percent and nearly 60 percent of the vote, respectively, in their constituencies.

In single-member constituencies, if a candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote in the first round, he or she wins a seat in the parliament without a runoff.
