According to Section 50 of the Federal Registration Act (BMG), the names and addresses of voters may be sent to parties, voter associations and other providers of election proposals up to six months before an election so that they can use them for individual addressing in the election campaign. The information may only be used for election advertising purposes and must be deleted within one week of the election day.

Citizens have the right to object to registration information for election advertising purposes. The declaration of objection can be submitted to any registration office (customer centers of the district offices). The objection does not require any justification. It becomes effective upon entry in the population register and continues to apply to all future elections until it is withdrawn. Processing is free of charge. A corresponding form can be found under the links or in the customer centers.

The right to object can only be exercised uniformly. An objection limited to a specific party is inadmissible. The fact that the right of objection has been exercised will not be communicated to political parties, electoral associations and other electoral nomination bodies. Objections will also be taken into account by minors who are entitled to vote until the next election.
