In regular times, the stakeholders meet and elect for the first time the participants’ executive committee, when procedures under the Land Consolidation Act (Federal Republic of Germany – Flurbereinigungsgesetz [FlurbG]) have been ordered. However, as a result of the Corona pandemic, infection control legislation has made it much more difficult to hold public gatherings since March 2020. Therefore, the agency for rural development in Middle Franconia (Amt für Ländliche Entwicklung Mittelfranken) organizes first elections on an election date since July 2020. On this day, the electors can cast their vote for several hours. The contribution regards the compliance with legal foundations and compares the election date’s advantages and drawbacks in contrast to postal voting. Besides, it describes the election date’s preparation and conduct.
