Crucial elections for the German Bundestag take place on Sunday, September 22. The next few days mark the end of what has been an eventful campaign. Bündnis 90/Die Grünen, the German Green party, have worked hard to convince voters that by voting form them, they're voting for a strong coalition with the SPD that will get Merkel out of office. They want voters to know that a vote for them is a vote for Wechsel - “change.”
Over the next few days, the party will be focusing on a strong campaign to convince voters to go Green. Their website has a handy toolkit of quick and easy ways voters can spread the Green message throughout their friends, families and neighbourhoods. Supporters can send texts, emails or send Facebook messages in less than 30 seconds from the Greens website. If you have 120 seconds to spare, you can check out their 2 Minutes for Green page.
If you've an hour or two, you can join their street campaign teams. You can find out where your nearest team is here.
One of the centre pieces for the Green's final push will be the 3 Tage Wach ('3 Days Awake'). From 6pm on September 19, for 72 hours, over 300 volunteers, staff and Greens will be on non-stop duty. They will answer any questions you have about Green policy - in the last elections they answered 12,000 questions. You can follow the live stream, or visit them at Breitscheidplatz in Berlin. You can find more information on how to ask questions, and timetable here.
