ENThe research analyses the properties of electoral behaviour of voters in the Vilnius, Kaunas and Klaipėda metropolitan areas based on the data collected during the Lithuanian Parliament elections in 2000 and 2012 and censuses of residents and households of 2001 and 2011. The regions of Lithuania’s major cities were selected due to the great socio-demographic and cultural variety of their residents and due to the fact that this variety is distributed unevenly in space. Political parties that belong to the centre-right block were chosen for the electoral structure analysis. The main goal of the research is to evaluate the interrelations between changing socio-demographic and political structures in sprawling urban regions. A correlation analysis of electoral and statistical data was carried out to substantiate the territorial patterns of electoral behaviour outlined in this work. The socio-demographic and cultural structure of the city territory was evaluated to base the formation of Vilnius, Kaunas and Klaipėda urban regions ‘electoral’ structure as they are related by causality. It was found that the causality and patterns in the territorial distribution of election results can be found by analysing the social differences of voters living in different parts of the region.
