Before the elections
For the first time in 13 years free, direct and secret elections will again take place - on Sept. 15th in the Gemeinden of the Britisch Occupation Zone and on Oct. 13th in Hamburg und Bremen.
Prerequisite for the right to vote is previous registration in the voting list. The voter has to be 21 years old ... which age he must have attained not later than May 12th 1946.
Everywhere the voters attend the election contentions. Older but particularly the younger people are encourraged - after years of intellectual suppression - to form their own opinion in free debate and discussion and make their decision accordingly.
These pictures demonstrate how the voting takes place. Don't forget to bring your Stammkarte and other identification papers with you.
According to local conditions, several candidates will be directly elected. One peculiarity of the forthcoming elections is that one resp. several designated personalities will be elected rather than a certain party.
Surprise may be caused by the fact that this time there will be no envelopes available for the voting papers. This is due to the general severe paper shortage. Every safeguard, however, has been taken to ensure thatthe secrecy of the election is absolutely and unfailingly preserved.
The polling boxes are sealed after conclusion of the elections and taken to the counting stations in the election districts.
The elections are free, direct and secret. Voter, remember: "Your future depends on your vote!"
