On the 26th of this month, Berliners were to participate in the national vote to select 709 members of the Bundestag (German Parliament), but also had to elect the members of the regional chamber and municipal government.

In addition, they had to go to the polls to express their opinion in a referendum on the expropriation of large real estate companies.

Local media reported the dissatisfaction of citizens with the conditions in which the day was held, as they had to wait for hours and queue long to vote.

In addition, there were delays with the arrival of the ballots and several schools received the ballots from others, reason why they had to close and invalidate those already issued.

After acknowledging her responsibility, Michaelis regretted what happened and asked to be replaced in October.

An initial investigation found problems in about a hundred polling stations, but inquiries continue and the results will be released next week.
