How to apply for a new one?
If you are unable to make a personal choice for the upcoming election, you have the possibility to apply for a new one. This is possible in many ways and can also be carried out by a third person in the case of needy people.

What are the dates for the dial-out?
As a person entitled to vote, you have the option to apply for a vote by the Friday evening before the election day. An exception also applies to sudden illnesses. In this case, however, you need a written proof, so that you can still apply to the election even on the election day. The Federal Electoral Commissioner explains online: "Those entitled to vote by mail should submit the application for election papers and ballot papers as early as possible to the municipality of their principal place of residence."

By the way, you do not have to wait for the sending of the election notification. As soon as the date for an election is fixed, you have the possibility to submit your application. However, in the case of a very early application, it will take some time before you hold your choice documents in your hands. The ballot papers are usually only printed about four weeks before the election, in order to be able to take into consideration any changes.

A postal code is also a good option, if the election location is not accessible. On the application form for the application for a postal vote, the following is stated: "Anyone who submits the request for another person must prove by submitting a written power of attorney that he is entitled to do so."

Mail: What are the options for applying?
When you apply for the postal code, you have several options. For example, you might want to personally manage your community, or send your application by post, fax, telegraph, e-mail, or in special cases by telegram. However, a telephone application is not possible. If you do not use the electoral message to request your vote, simply formulate your request. In any case, please provide your personal data, ie your first and last name, your date of birth and your full address in your letter.

If you are unable to submit your application yourself due to a disability, it is permissible that someone can help you. Grant either an appropriate power of attorney or provide proof that your helper is acting as you please by presenting your personal relationship.

How do I submit the ballot ballot?
Once you have received your passport and made your choice, you should submit the documents as soon as possible. These must be received by the competent authority no later than 6 pm on the day of election. You can send your electoral letter by post or return it at the address printed on the cover. This can, of course, be done by another person without authorization.

If you send your electoral letter by post, you do not need to post it as far as you send the letter within Germany. Note that it may take several days for the letter to be sent to the competent authority. For your convenience, use three workdays for the post. Be aware that it is ultimately your sole responsibility to ensure that your vote arrives in time for the election.
