Voting is simple!
You can vote if you are a foreigner (including EU citizens and stateless persons), are over
18 and have been registered at your present address for longer than three months.
A few weeks before the election you will receive a voting card (see samples), which also contains the address of your polling station. You will be able to vote at any time between 8 am and 6 pm (8.00 - 18.00 Uhr) on 29 November 2015.

You can find out who is up for election from your local Ausländerbeirat, brochures, the
internet or from the sample voting paper, which you will find on these pages after September 2015.
