Municipal elections in Baden-Württemberg 2014 - Kommunalwahlen in Baden-Württemberg 2014

The local elections in Baden-Württemberg took place on May 25, 2014 at the same time as the 2014 European elections in Germany and local elections in nine other federal states.

The members of the municipal councils and district councils in 1101 municipalities and 35 rural districts as well as the regional assembly of the Stuttgart Region Association were elected . As in previous Baden-Württemberg municipal elections, voters were able to collect ( cumulate ) votes for individual applicants as well as distribute ( variegate ) their votes among candidates from different nomination lists .

Compared to the municipal elections in Baden-Württemberg in 2009 , however, some changes came into force that resulted from the amendment [1] to the municipal and district regulations and the Local Election Act (Baden-Württemberg) decided by the state parliament on April 11, 2013 :

  • The minimum age for the right to vote was reduced from 18 to 16 years, while the minimum age for the passive right of 18 years remained unchanged.
  • The previously used D'Hondt procedure , which favors large parties, has been replaced as the seat allocation procedure by the Sainte-Laguë procedure , which has been used for the Baden-Württemberg state elections since 2011.
  • District council candidates are no longer allowed to run in two constituencies .
  • The revised Section 9, Paragraph 6 of the Local Election Act reads: “Men and women should be considered equally when drawing up an election proposal. This can be done in such a way that men and women are alternately considered in the order of the applicants in the nominations. The observance of sentences 1 and 2 is not a prerequisite for the approval of a nomination. "

Nominations for election could be submitted until March 27, 2014. [2]
