The Reichstag Elections of 2011 took place throughout the Greater German Reich on July 10, 2011. The elections were set by reformer Führer Heinz Buckliger, who proclaimed that the Reichstag had been a rubber stamp for the Reich for far too long. These were the first actual contested elections since those in 1933, when the Nazi Party first took power in Germany. Subsequent elections only presented the voter with Nazi candidates, and an inevitable Nazi victory. For years before 2011, most eligible voters didn't bother to exercise their rights, knowing full well it didn't matter.

The election very nearly didn't happen. Early in 2011, reactionary elements in the Reich, led by Reichsführer-SS Lothar Prützmann launched a putsch against Buckliger. While Buckliger was detained for a day, the German people took to the streets, styming Prützmann's efforts. The putsch failed twenty-four hours after it began, and Buckliger was restored.

The CampaignEdit

The campaigns took place at the local level, with reformers facing off against conservatives. The reformers' platform was to turn back the totalitarianism that had marked the Reich for nearly its entire history, including a restoration of personal liberty to the people of Germany, an increase of democracy in the system, a reduction in militarism, and a gradual reduction of the occupation of its global empire. In support of their position, the reformers relied on the First Edition of Mein Kampf, wherein Adolf Hitler had actually espoused the virtue of the democratic election of Party and government officials.

The conservatives saw these reforms as a fundamental threat to the fabric of the Reich, but did little to actually demonstrate this. The failure of the putsch discredited them even further.

Neither side addressed the Reich's practice of racism and its destruction of people it deemed sub-human, specifically the Jews. Only true Aryans could participate as either voters or candidates.

The ElectionEdit

Sunday, 10 July 2011 saw the largest voter turnout the country had known in decades. With the people mobilized, the reformers won the majority, and the Reich took the first steps on the slow march to reform.
