Voigt, the son of a hotelier, studied law between 1886 and 1890 at the universities of Wrocław, Berlin and Königsberg. In 1899, Voigt became the mayor of Rixdorf (nowadays a part of Berlin-Neukölln) and was also the mayor of Barmen between 1906 and 1912, before becoming the mayor of Frankfurt. From 1907, he was a member of the Prussian House of Lords for the National Liberal Party, which later became the German Democratic Party.
After losing the 1924 Frankfurt mayoral elections, Voigt was elected in November of that year to be the mayor of Marburg from February 1925, where he governed until his death in April 1927. He was buried in Berlin-Zehlendorf.
