Ljubljana, 7 January - On Sunday, December 6, some 1.5 million Slovenians went to the 3,665 polling stations to cast their votes for the President of the Republic of Slovenia, for 90 deputy seats to the National Assembly, and 22 deputy seats to the National Council representing local interests. This year's election turnout was 76%. For the first time, Slovenian citizens living abroad could vote by absentee ballot.
