Election advertising contradiction
Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

According to Section 50 of the Federal Registration Act (BMG), the names and addresses of eligible voters may be transmitted to parties, electoral associations and other supporters of election proposals within a period of up to six months before an election, so that they can use them for individual addressing in the election campaign. The information may only be used for election advertising purposes and must be deleted within one week after the election day.

Citizens have the right to object to information from the population register for the purposes of election advertising. The declaration of objection can be submitted to any resident service (customer centers of the district offices). The objection does not require any justification. It becomes effective when it is entered in the register of residents and continues to apply to all future elections until it is withdrawn. Processing is free of charge. A corresponding form is available on the Internet ( http://www.hamburg.de/wahlen or http://www.datenschutz-hamburg.de/ihr-recht-auf-datenschutz/meldewesen.html ) or in the customer centers.

The right of objection can only be exercised uniformly. An objection limited to a specific party is inadmissible. The fact that the right of objection has been exercised will not be communicated to the parties, electoral associations and other nominees. Contradictions are also taken into account by minors who are entitled to vote until the next election.
Declaration of objection (suggested text see link) can also be sent by post.


Lives in Hamburg.


The parties are entitled to obtain addresses from the resident customer centers from 6 months before an election.
