Berlin, Germany

Operational date(s):

Sept. 26, 2021 to Sept. 27, 2021

German voters head to the polls on Sept. 26 in a landmark general election that will decide who will succeed Angela Merkel as the nation's Chancellor.

AP brings you a range of services tailored to your needs.

Merkel announced in 2018 that she wouldn't seek a fifth four-year term in office. The contenders to replace her are Armin Laschet for Merkel's center-right Union bloc, Olaf Scholz for the center-left Social Democrats and Annalena Baerbock for the environmentalist Greens.

The race is too close to call, with recent polls suggesting that many voters are unimpressed with the choice they face. Laschet's Union bloc - which long enjoyed a lead - is polling level with or even slightly behind Scholz's long-moribund Social Democrats, with the Greens a few points back.
