Our institute is launching a new election research project with the aim of promoting research and studies. The aim of the project is to set up a database that brings together comprehensive information on German federal, state and local elections since 1949 and makes it available for research.

With the planned database, we want to make a contribution to the improvement of conditions for scientific research. The election data and documents collected as part of the project will be freely accessible on the Internet or made available for download free of charge.

In the first phase of the project, election publications of the federal, state and local elections since 1949 are currently being recorded and made available for use via the election portal. Data from previous elections from the time of the Weimar Republic and National Socialism will be included in the election portal at a later date.

If you have any suggestions, questions or suggestions for improvement, please write us an e-mail at:

Please note: The database is currently under construction. Therefore, not all features and content are implemented.

To download the election documents, please use the download area of the election portal.
