In the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina voters were given a ballot for both Bosniak and Croat candidates, but only a single candidate could be chosen. People residing in the Brčko District were allowed to participate in either the Federation or the Republika Srpska elections.

Opinion polls have Sauli Niinistö overwhelmingly beating Pekka Haavisto (65-35%).

Final election returns show that Niinistö received 62% of the vote to become the first conservative president of Finland since 1956.
