In cases where the delimitation of constituencies pursuant to the 17th Amendment Law combines territorial units for which no postal ballot results are available due to the allocation of postal ballot boards for the 2002 Bundestag Elections, the postal ballot results for the new constituencies concerned according to the 17th Amendment Law could not be calculated exactly. In such cases the postal ballot result for the territorial unit concerned (e.g. a municipality allocated differently by the 17thAmendment Law) is estimated in concert with the Land Returning Officers responsible. This was done by converting the percentage shares of the postal ballot result available of the lowest territorial level the territorial unit concerned is allocated to (e.g. the rural district to which the relocated municipality belongs).
A file containing the converted results (first and second votes in all constituencies) is available to you in csv format for further processing with a spreadsheet program at "wkumrechnung2005.csv".
The converted results of the elections to the 16 German Bundestag are also available as a download file, PDF 397 KB.©2012 The Federal Returning Officer
