Results of the local elections for Bonn
Election of the Mayor
Eligible to vote in local elections in our city are Germans as well as citizens of the other 26 EU member states who have reached the age of 16 on the day of the election, have lived or otherwise habitually resided in the City of Bonn's electoral territory from at least the 16th day before the election and are not excluded from the right to vote.
The direct elections of Mayors in North Rhine-Westphalia have been held since 1999. The persons entitled to vote have one vote each. Anyone who has received more than half of the valid votes is elected. If this majority is not achieved, a second ballot must be held between the two best placed candidates. The law on the reintroduction of the runoff election of 3 May 2011 lays down the details.
