Democracy for Development: Would you vote if elections were held next Sunday?

If elections were held today, 83-84% of Kosovans would participate in voting, 13-14% would not, and 3-4% are undecided. Men would display a higher voter turnout compared to women. Out of every 100 men, 85 of them would cast their votes, compared to only 82 women. 16 women would choose to stay at home, 5 more than men. This gender gap is smaller than in previous years, and if this trend continues, women’s voter participation is likely to equal that of men in less than a decade.

Residents of rural areas are more willing to participate in voting, approximately 3% more likely than those in urban areas. Representation is likely lower in urban areas, where the voter-to-representative ratio is higher, which, in turn, contributes to lower voter engagement. Political parties that focus on representing the interests of women and urban voters are more likely to improve their electoral percentages.


The data are derived from the survey carried out in June 2023, throughout Kosovo, with a representative sample of 1065 respondents, including all communities, in cooperation with UBO Consulting.
