Popis This study gives a basic overview of the distribution of electoral turnout in Slovak parliamentary elections in the period 1990 – 2016. The aim is to assess the stability of voter turnout and identify its spatial patterns. The pattern of stability of the spatial distribution is examined by the modified method of identification of electoral support areas developed by Jehlička and Sýkora (1991). The results of the analysis show, that the voter turnout in the 1990s was characterized by significant instability compared to electoral participation after the year 2000. The long-term low participation is mainly in the districts of eastern and southern Slovakia and also in the Záhorie region. Until 2000, Bratislava had a low voter turnout, but since the elections in 2002, the turnout has increased. The long-term high electoral participation can be observed mainly in the regions of Žilina and Trenčín. The district with the highest voter turnout throughout the mentioned period is Tvrdošín. This study highlights several interesting aspects of the distribution of electoral turnout, which could be explored by further studies.
