ENThis paper examines Lithuanian election activity in 2014–2016 on the basis of municipal councils, parliamentary and presidential elections. The main goal of the work is to determine the causes of the activity of Lithuania’s voters from a territorial point of view. In this publication, there is presented a working methodology which was used in the study. Also, an overview of why election activity is important in Lithuania is provided. The main factors determining the activity of voters are distinguished according to foreign and Lithuanian authors’ literature. The groups of internal, external and joint factors are used in this study. Internal factors include: socio-economic status, political (civil) skills, and support for political parties. External factors include: functionality of political system, geopolitical influence, and group of geographic and natural conditions. There was distinguished a group of social networks with internal and external features and other factors.Election activity in Lithuania was determined by more different factors; however, their influence was very low. Each group of factors is described in detail and justified by an example from Lithuania. The paper presents two maps depicting differences in election activity: municipal councils vs. parliamentary and parliamentary vs. presidential. Elections activity was analyzed based on special territorial units formed by grouping election districts. Six groups were formed: big cities, middle cities, suburbs, small towns, townships and larger settlements, and rural areas. The differences of election activity were discussed by different types of elections. In this paper, regions and subregions are presented according to the average activity of election. This publication reveals that the electorate of eastern and southern Lithuania (especially southeast Lithuania) was the strongest election activist. In western Lithuania election activity was the lowest, and in central and northern Lithuania it took a transitional position between the previously named regions of Lithuania. [From the publication]
