Württemberg in the Weimar Republic.
Comparative support for the Nazi Party, March 1933

This table shows the historical election results for the Landtag in the Free People's State of Württemberg, a part of the Weimar Republic. This was the successor state of the former Kingdom of Württemberg in southwestern Germany, between the end of the German Empire (1871–1918) and start of the Nazi regime in 1933.[1]

The table is an important indicator of the swings in political opinion in this part of Germany between the second and third Reichs, a period when parliamentary democracy came to have real political meaning in Germany. Württemberg is now a part of the modern land (federal state) of Baden-Württemberg.
