In which political direction is Lower Saxony headed? On Sunday, almost eight million residents were called to vote for the next state parliament in the 2022 Lower Saxony election. Use our unique interactive map of all constituencies and cities to find out about all election results. We take into account a large number of individual data sources across the large number of communities so that you can get an idea of the election in one place.
Lower Saxony election 2022: Interactive map of all constituencies and cities
The federal state of Lower Saxony is generally not the city of metropolises: the state capital Hanover is number 1 with half a million inhabitants. This is followed by considerably smaller cities such as Braunschweig, Oldenburg and Osnabrück. Most of Lower Saxony live in one of the almost 1000 municipalities.
So our map is very detailed – with results from Cuxhaven in the north to Staufenberg in the south, from Wielen in the west to Schnackenburg in the east. In doing so, we not only take into account the results of the superordinate joint communities, but also those of the individual member communities.
What results do we present?
All results in the map come from official sources. The data flowed into the map as soon as a result was fully counted and transmitted on site. We from the IPPEN.MEDIA data journalism team took into account a large number of data sources, ranging from the Lower Saxony state office to election portals. We also researched individual results for you on site if they were not available digitally. See our background box at the end of the article for more specific information.
Lower Saxony election 2022: All news in the ticker
Which coalition is it enough for? How do the top candidates express themselves? What effects does the result of the Lower Saxony state election have on federal politics? We followed this election in detail throughout Sunday in a live ticker. Our reporters on site in Lower Saxony also contributed to this. Our goal: You are always well informed on the election evening with us about the results, votes and assessments of the state election.
Transparency: Our data, sources and methods
Each of the thousands of results in our interactive maps comes from official sources. For the constituencies, we rely on a data interface from the Lower Saxony State Office for Statistics. We regularly query these automatically, standardize the results and transfer them to our maps.
We take a variety of sources into account for the municipalities: These include individual joint municipalities and municipalities as well as Votemanager, IVU.Elect and, if necessary, on-site research. Not every municipality has its own postal voting district. In this case, the result is shown without postal votes, since the votes cannot be reliably assigned.
