On Sunday, Thuringia's local elections kicked off without much fuss. By midday, approximately 24.4% of the 1.74 million eligible voters had made their way to the polls, the State Statistical Office reported. This percentage does not account for mail-in ballots. Back during the 2019 local and European elections, turnout was slightly higher, at 25.2% at noon. As of now, there have been no reported disturbances or incidents. The polls will continue operating until 6:00pm.

These elections will determine the fate of 13 district council members, 94 mayors (of which 5 are for independent cities), 1025 district and local mayors, 17 county councils, and over 600 city and municipal councils.
