Parliamentary elections in Germany took place on 12 November 1933. They were the second under Nazi Party rule, and the first since Adolf Hitler effectively seized dictatorial powers with the passage of the Enabling Act. All opposition parties had been banned by this time, and voters were presented with a single list containing Nazis and 22 non-party "guests" of the Nazi Party. Such delegates, who included the likes of Alfred Hugenberg, still fully supported the Hitler regime however.
This election set the tone for all further elections and referenda held in the Nazi era. The vote was held in far-from secret circumstances, and in several areas voters were threatened with reprisals if they failed to vote or dared to vote no. Nonetheless, 3.3 million voters submitted 'invalid' ballots. These elections were held on the same day as a separate referendum on Hitler's decision to pull Germany out of the League of Nations, which passed with similar numbers. The new Reichstag, exclusively composed of NSDAP members and sympathisers, convened on 12 December to elect a Presidium headed by President of the Reichstag Hermann Göring.
