Hamm - Neither

Thomas Hunsteger-Petermann

nor

Marc Herter

himself expected that.

In the

2020 local elections in

North

Rhine-Westphalia

on September 13th, the

SPD

challenger outstripped the long-term mayor of Hamm.

The gap between the candidates was small, and so a close result of the

runoff election in Hamm can

be expected

on September 27th

.

Local election in Hamm: The result of the mayor election is a small sensation

In almost all of Hamm's electoral districts, Herter (SPD) collected more votes, so that in the end,

with 40.68 percentage points, he

surprisingly ended up ahead of CDU incumbent Hunsteger-Petermann (

37.41 percent

).

The local election result in Hamm was a little sensation for many.

After all, Hunsteger-Petermann has

been

Lord Mayor of Hamm

for 21 years

.

Now he has to go into the

runoff election

against Marc Herter on September 27th

.

After he had gathered himself briefly, Hunsteger-Petermann was combative: "We will wuppen that in the second round," said the CDU politician.

Runoff election in Hamm: result expected on September 27th

In the next round of the

OB election

, Hunsteger-Petermann must hope for the votes of those who voted in the first ballot to one of the other candidates.

For example,

Arnela Sacic

(Greens) and

Pierre Jung

(AfD) are no longer allowed to compete in the second round.

Of course, it is not foreseeable in advance which voters will vote for another applicant.

Ultimately, it also has an influence on the runoff result if they switch to non-voters in the second ballot.

For the runoff election on September 27th, postal voting documents can be requested online again.

Important: Postal voters in the 1st ballot do not have to submit a new application for the runoff!

From Friday the postal voting stations will open again.
