Berlin Elections 2011 Part 1 – Campaign Posters

     |    Sunday, der 28. August 2011

This is not an endorsement of the party that published this poster (Piratenpartei or Pirate Party). But the slogan – “don’t trust any poster – inform yourselves!” was a rare beacon of light in an election campaign that eclipsed past ones with particularly vapid and opportunistic (even for election campaign standards) communiqués.

Here a selection of sites offering information about the Berlin elections:

Website of the City-State of Berlin Election Commission (in German)

For non-EU citizens who want to vote – period. And EU nationals who would like to cast their ballots for the city-state parliament, not just in the local district assemblies.
