Made in Europe.
Take part and shape your future!
Vote Volt into the Munich City Council.
As a European-oriented party we don't just think locally, we look for solutions across borders. This way, Munich benefits from best practices of other European metropolitan cities. At the same time, Munich can become a role model for other European cities.
You can vote for us in Munich, as an EU citizen!

- they are at least 18 years old,

Information for EU Citizens
Here you can find translations of our election flyer to various languages. If yours is not there yet: Stay tuned, more will be coming!
Your vote for Volt is a vote for:
Munich as European Metropolitan City
with a full-fledged Europe Department, intensive cooperation with EU institutions, a Welcome Desk for Europeans who come to Munich, a strengthening of the existing city partnerships (i.a. with Edinburgh/Verona/Bordeaux) and creation of new ones, and an annual Europe Day.
Social Housing Policy
that protects Munich's tenants, creates living space pragmatically, re-enables the purchase of living space for the middle class, eases the search for a home and promotes sustainability in construction and living.
Active Environmental and Climate Protection
a reduction in the pollution of the city (i. a. light pollution), as well as a "zero waste policy" in the long term.
Smart Public Transport
less motorised individual transport, improvements for cyclists and pedestrians, shared mobility as a model for the future and a reduction of air traffic.
Just and Efficient Education
through improvements in the learning conditions in schools, enhanced usage of digital technology, a more attractive structure of the Münchner Volkshochschule and sufficient support for disabled people.
of the administration to make better use of the citizen's time (e-government), a noticeable improvement in life quality through linkages (Smart City), further and easier digital citizen participation and a sustainable economic development through digital innovation.
with libraries as cultural policy infrastructure, support of cultural organizations and promotion of Munich's values, such as diversity and high culture (Munich's museums as well as its art and theatre landscape).
that is why Volt stands for the elections with a gender-balanced list including 35 Munich citizens of different ages and sexual orientations, who come from 8 different EU countries.
And above all, your vote won't be a lost vote!
There is no restrictive clause at the local elections, therefore even 0,7% suffice for a seat in the city council. At last year's European elections we could win 2,2% of the votes from scratch, such a result now would already be enough for two seats.
