Register ingenuism of EU citizens living in Germany

If you are a citizen of the Union living in Germany and wish to vote in the European elections, you must be entered in the electoral register. This is either done of your own motion or you must apply for registration. If, on request, you have been entered on the electoral roll in a previous European election and have not moved abroad in the meantime, you will be entered on the electoral register of your own motion and do not need to make a new application. In the other cases, you must apply for registration on the electoral roll.

Unless you are entered on the electoral roll of your own motion, you must submit an application in accordance with Annex 2A to the European Electoral Regulations.


You must submit the application in writing and sign it in person and by hand.
