No election campaign gets by without posters or info booths in pedestrian zones. In the street campaigns, parties and public are discussing, arguing, canvassing – all with the tremendous efforts and dedication of many campaign volunteers. They spend their weekends at info booths, hand out flowers and put up posters. What drives them? A look behind the scenes of the street campaigns in Bavaria and Berlin.
