Voter register for mayoral election registration

An official electoral register is kept for each constituency. It lists all citizens who are entitled to vote on election day. In principle, persons entitled to vote who are registered in the municipality on the 42nd day before the election with their main residence are entered on the electoral register of their own motion. The municipality will send you an election notification no later than the 21st day before the election. Note: The election notification also applies to a possible second ballot. This is necessary if none of the candidates has received the required majority in the first round of voting. If you have not received an election notification until the 21st day before the election, you should immediately check with your municipality whether you are on the electoral roll. If this is not the case, you can apply for registration. If you have a different situation, e..B. immigration to the municipality after the 42nd day before the election or permanent residence as a secondary residence, please contact the municipal electoral authority immediately.
