VILNIUS, Lithuania (AP) - The European Union's budget chief has declared victory in Lithuania's presidential election after partial results show voter turnout was high enough to avoid a runoff.

Dalia Grybauskaite, who would become the country's first woman head of state, told supporters "I believe I won today and I thank all those who voted for me."

With more than 75 percent of ballots counted Grybauskaite has about two-thirds of the vote. The election commission says the preliminary turnout was 51 percent, just enough to avoid a second round.
