According to data from the Central Electoral Commission, Kęstutis Smirnovas of the Lithuanian Peasant and Green Union won the run-off round in Vilkaviškis with 49.44 percent of votes, defeating Butkevicius who secured 47.42 percent support.

However, Butkevičius, the leader of the Lithuanian Social Democratic Party, was elected to the Seimas in the first round two weeks ago based on proportional representation.
