This year's election takes place under the sign of the corona pandemic. For those who want to give their voice on Sunday on site in a polling station, the hygiene rules already known from everyday life apply.
In particular, a mask obligation applies in all 16 federal states. Exceptions are only available for persons who can not carry a mask for health reasons and demonstrate with an attest.

As handed over this Sunday with mask refusers in the polling stations, however, could differ nationally. North Rhine-Westphalia has already stated in his Corona Protection Ordinance, as to be handled with mask refusals: "In elections, eligible voters who violate the mask obligation is made possible by appropriate measures of the electoral board the exercise of their right to vote without danger to other persons," says there. If infection protection can not be guaranteed under the circumstances given, a person who violates the mask obligation, but referenced from the election space.inconsistent handling in the federal states
in the Baden-Württemberg Corona Protection Ordinance, however, is explicitly stated that persons violating the mask obligation is "access to the electoral building prohibited".
The inconsistent handling in the federal states is thus related to the fact that no nationwide pandemic regulation was created in the Federal Electoral Regulation (BWO). Regulations such as those in the Corona Protection Ordinance Baden-Württemberg would therefore be on shaky legs, writes the Augsburger Professor for Medical Law and Legal Philosophy, Josef Franz Lindner, in a contribution to the "Constitution Blog". In paragraph 56 of the Federal Electoral Regulations, reasons for the rejection of voters and voters are clearly regulated - a violation of the mask obligation is not included.
contradicts the office of the Federal Electoral Leader. "According to § 31 sentence 2 of the Federal Electoral Act, the electoral board can refer to persons who disturb the order in the electoral station," assigns an employee to RND request. A violation of the applicable mask obligation is such a disturbance of the order. Whether mask refuser would be referenced from the electoral space, lying at the discretion of the electoral board. As a rule, however, a mask violation would lead to the admission that access is denied. "If other persons in the electoral chamber would be jeopardized by the circumstances by the infringement of the infringement protection mask obligation, the electoral board will usually make use of his discretion to refer to the election area."
