Did you know that in Austria 1.4 million people are not allowed to vote? And that in Vienna, every third resident is excluded from the upcoming election in October 2020?

Why? Well, voting rights are linked to the Austrian citizenship and without it you can’t vote: In Vienna are more than 482.000 inhabitants who are not represented in the elections.

Why does this affect us all? 72 % of the inhabitants of Vienna live here longer than 5 years. They belong to the younger section of society, that are from working class districts, many are born in Austria. The Austrian electorate is losing its democratic legitimization, because it is not representative of the population in numbers, age, and income.

WAHLWEXEL opens a space to face these contradictions of democracy, and to make the wrongs rights. We invite everybody to sign our petition (mein.aufstehn.at/p/wahlrecht) and join residents who don't have the right to vote in Austria to co-decide in our event. Come join us!
