Information about the election

You can find the very best information in the election magazine.

ATTENTION: Due to the widespread disruption of local public transport in Bonn, unfortunately not all polling stations can be opened or have changed opening hours. Affected by this are:

  • Polling station 13 - Hörsaalzentrum Poppelsdorf 2. The next polling station (polling station 12 - HSZ 1) is located directly next to it. In case of longer waiting times, you can also switch to the polling station in the MNL (in the building directly next to it).
  • Polling station 16 - Venusberg 1 The next polling station (polling station 17 - Venusberg 2) is located in the teaching building 10 on the grounds of the University Hospital.
  • Polling station 17 - Venusberg 2: The polling station is only open until 4 p.m. today instead of 5:30 p.m. as planned.

You can find an overview of all polling stations on the map further down on this page. We apologize for the problems.
