2024 European election: thank you for serving as poll workers on electoral boards!

WIESBADEN – The right to vote is a cornerstone of our democracy. While responsibility for conducting elections lies with the electoral bodies, no election would be possible without the many citizens who volunteer their time. In Germany, for instance, approximately 675,000 volunteer poll workers will help to ensure the proper conduct of the 10th direct election to the European Parliament on 9 June 2024. The Federal Returning Officer expresses her sincere thanks to all those who will serve as poll workers on electoral boards on 9 June 2024, thus doing a great service to our democracy and, consequently, to all of us. Special thanks go to the poll workers who help to restore flood damage and also ensure the proper conduct of the election.
