European Elections 2019: What result is expected in advance?

Already months before the 2019 European elections, surveys give an overview of how the parties would fare. Randomly selected people are asked by telephone survey for their voting decision at the current time. The question is always formulated identically: "Which party would you vote for if European elections were to be held next Sunday?"

Survey institutes regularly announce the results of the European election polls. These are, for example, the survey values ​​from the beginning of April 2019, which Infratest Dimap has determined:

  • CDU / CSU: 30%
  • SPD: 17%
  • Green: 19%
  • FDP: 7%
  • AfD: 11%
  • The Left: 7%
  • Other: 9%

What happens until the European election result on election night?

The so-called 18 hour forecast is based on interviews that take place on election day. After the ballot, randomly selected polling stations are randomly selected Voters from polling institutes asked which party they voted for, Because voters are interviewed directly after leaving the polling station, they also talk about "exit polls". The voters give their answers anonymously and in writing. It's practically a second, unofficial, election. However, the results are only reliable if voters respond truthfully.

In addition to the voting decision, other characteristics of the persons are also queried. For example, it is possible to analyze which voter migrations have taken place or which sections of the population have voted particularly frequently for a particular party.

Unlike the official election, the votes are counted, compiled and evaluated before the polls are closed. Thus, already at 18 o'clock a reliable prognosis for the European Election 2019 results. The prognosis is a representative survey, which is naturally subject to a certain fault tolerance.

In the forecast, only the vote of the citizens who voted on election day can be recorded. Postal votes are not included. This forecast will also be announced punctually on TV at 6pm, or in the live stream, which you can find at *, for example.

In the course of the evening, they are approaching more and more the actual result of the 2019 European elections. As more and more constituencies report their results, they are becoming increasingly important. The weight of the forecasts decreases at the same time. Moreover, calculation models can correct regional variations in the calculation of the forecast, but the European election results from the constituencies give a more reliable picture.

If you would like to get the results from your constituency directly, you can look at the counting in the polling station. It is a public event to which visitors are admitted.

Preliminary results of the European elections on election night

At the late hour, the provisional official final result is usually determined during the night after the election evening. This is composed of the results obtained from the electoral districts through various instances to the Federal Returning Officer. The transmission of the results is done by telephone or electronically.

At the end, the Federal Returning Officer is also the one who announces the official final result. This happens after the counted votes and the electoral notes have also come to him through various instances and the Federal Electoral Committee has met. Among other things, the ballot papers and irregularities that resulted from the count have been documented in the electoral notes.

If the official final result of the European elections is known, the Federal Returning Officer notifies the selected candidates. After the results of the European elections in 2019 have been largely determined since the election day, the notification of the selected candidates is only a formal act.

At the previous general election the official final result was fixed 18 days after election day, For the European elections in 2019, which takes place on 26 May, the Federal Returning Officer expects according to own data for the 24th of June with a final result.
