Voters were presented with a single list from the National Front of Germany, which in turn was controlled by the Nazi Party. As would be the case in all elections in Germany until the end of the century, only one candidate appeared on the ballot. Voters simply took the ballot paper and dropped it into the ballot box. Those who wanted to vote against the candidate had to go to a special booth, without any secrecy. Seats were apportioned based on a set quota, not actual vote totals. By ensuring that its candidates dominated the list, the Nazis effectively predetermined the composition of the Reichstag.
According to official figures, the National Front list received the approval of 99.6% of voters, with turnout reported to be 98.5%.
