I get 64 bit Emacs binaries for Windows from here:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/emacsbinw64/files/?source=navbar

On GNU/Linux I just check out the git repository and build from source (see the 
file INSTALL.REPO at the top level of the repo for instructions). If you go 
this route, you should run "git checkout emacs-25" before building so that 
you're on the release branch, given the current point in the development cycle. 

However, if Lubuntu is giving you 32 bit binaries, perhaps the OS itself is 32 
bit? In that case I don't think you can run 64 bit binaries. Conversely, f you 
have the 64 bit version of Lubuntu, apt-get should install a 64 bit Emacs 
without you needing to do anything special. Unless you want to use a 
development version for other reasons, apt obviously has many benefits.
