Bundestag election 2021

Information for poll workers

Poll workers are indispensable for the conduct of elections. They are the basis of the election being organised by the people and thus the most important pillar of the electoral procedure. In all-German elections, there are poll workers on about 88,000 electoral boards. For most voters they are the immediate contact persons.

As things stand, it is likely that on election day (26 September 2021) there will still be a pandemic situation in Germany. Please observe the infection control regulations applying in your region on election day. Your electoral office will inform you in due course about the relevant health and safety protocol.
