Repeat Election 2023 

The election on 12 February 2023 is a repeat election 

The BVV (and the Berlin House of Representatives) have previously been elected on 26 September 2021. This election has been declared invalid due to errors during the election process. The election must therefore be repeated 

The legislative period doesn’t start from the beginning. The next elections will take place in autumn 2026, five years after the last regular elections. 

The parties and voters’ associations (see Who is elected to the BVV?) will put up the same lists of candidates for election as on 26 September 2021. Only candidates who have moved or died since then will be replaced by other candidates from the list.
