Entry of an EU citizen onto the electoral roll (EU elections)
If you are an EU citizen eligible to vote, you will only be entered onto the electoral roll at your request. If you were entered into a federal electoral roll at your request for the EU election of 1999-06-13 or later, you do not need to request entry onto the electoral roll of the Federal Republic of Germany.
- Obtain the officially stipulated form.
- Complete the form and sign it personally.
- Send the application to the competent city or municipal administration.
If you cannot read, or are not able to complete and submit the request form and affidavit yourself because of a physical impediment, you can ask for someone else to help you. This assistant must also sign the request form and affidavit, and must be at least 16 years of age.
The form "Antrag für die Eintragung in das Wählerverzeichnis" (application for entry onto the electoral roll) with completion information is available on the Federal Returning Officer’s portal before the election.
The forms are also available from your city and municipal administrations prior to the election.
Based on the German version authorized by Sächsisches Staatsministerium des Innern; mandatory information on certain procedures and processes can be obtained from the state election supervisor or Federal Returning Officer. 17.11.2017
