Stralsund – Nordvorpommern – Rügen (electoral district)
Stralsund – Nordvorpommern – Rügen was an electoral constituency (German: Wahlkreis) represented in the German Bundestag from 1990 to 2013. Part of the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the constituency elected one representative under the mixed member proportional representation (MMP) system. Under the current constituency numbering system, it was designated as constituency 15. The constituency was abolished as part of the 2012 federal boundary review, which saw the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern lose one of its 18 geographic constituencies as a result of population change. It was largely replaced with the Vorpommern-Rügen – Vorpommern-Greifswald I constituency, which took its district number of 15.
