The election will be held from 8 am to 6 pm on 26 September 2021 in all of Berlin’s boroughs.
You will receive an election notification [Wahlbenachrichtigung] by post to your registered address in Berlin. You will receive the election notification between 16 August and 5 September. If you still have not received a letter by 28 August, please go to your borough’s electoral office before 5 September and request assistance. You can find all deadlines here (in German).
The number and address of the polling station are printed on the election notification card.
For the BVV election, you are entitled to vote at a polling station other than the one specified on your card. However, in order to do so, you must apply for a voting slip [Wahlschein] in advance (see You are not in Berlin on election day?).
You will need to show official proof of identity (ID card or passport)
At the polling station, you will receive an orange ballot. On the ballot paper, you are only permitted to put one cross (indicating the party or voters’ association you want to vote for)
