Floods disrupt European Parliament elections

The recent floods in Germany’s state of Bavaria has affected voters for the European Parliament elections, with a number of polling stations forced to relocate and reports of lost voting documents.

Bavaria’s state election officer, Thomas Gössl, on Thursday, said that town halls were not yet usable in some affected regions, which is why provisional municipal administrations have been set up.

However, conversations with the election officers in these areas have shown that the election can be conducted properly, he said.

According to Gössl, voters who had lost their voting documents due to the floods or have not received them should contact their local authority promptly to request and collect new documents.

Gössl said new voting cards can still be issued in Bavaria until 12 pm (1000 GMT) on Saturday, NAN reports.
