European election Have eligibility determined

Service Description

You can stand for election to the European Parliament yourself under certain conditions. To do so, you must first be eligible to vote.

If you have German citizenship, you are eligible to vote if you also have German citizenship on election day. You must also be of age on election day. However, you are not eligible if you lose your active right to vote or your eligibility to vote due to a court decision or if you are not allowed to hold public office.

If you are a citizen of the Union, you are eligible to vote if you have a residence or habitual abode in Germany. You must also be a citizen of a member state of the European Union and at least 18 years old on election day. In turn, you lose your eligibility if you have been disqualified from voting in Germany or your country of origin, or if your eligibility has been revoked by a court decision. You are also ineligible if you are not allowed to hold public office in Germany on the basis of a court decision.
