Turnout in German election slightly lower than 2013 – official

German Chancellor Angela Merkel votes

urnout in Germany’s national election was slightly lower at 1200 GMT than at the same time four years ago, the Federal Returning Officer said in a statement on Sunday.

At 1200 GMT, 41.1 percent of registered voters had cast a ballot, compared to 41.4 percent in 2013. That masked considerable variation across the country. Earlier, North Rhine- Westphalia, the country’s most populous state, had reported a 3 percent increase in turnout.
