I have just voted in my first election for a national government in Germany. Wow — open the champagne John 🙂
It was a great feeling to walk to the primary school used as a local voting centre. Here is a photo so you can see that it really is a school. Into the entrance hall and turn right. Lots of information on the walls.
Two rooms were used for voting. I was in the first one. I had to join a queue and one of the election oganisers got talking to me about voting for the first time, and that it was nice to see ‘new’ Germans turning out to vote.
This evening I am going to a pub/restaurant in my district to join the rest of the ‘Comrades’ drinking beer and talking politics as we watch the election results come in on big TV screens.
Enjoy your evening.
