All German citizens and citizens of the European Union who have reached majority and who have lived in the county for at least three months are elegible for election.
The allocation of seats for the individual constituencies is based on the population of the towns and municipalities. The decisive population figures for the local elections 2019 are the updated population figures of the 1987 census. In the County of Ludwigsburg, the decisive population figure is 541,914. This has implications for the number of councillors to be elected (§ 57 Local Election Act in conjunction with § 20 para. 2 County Ordinance). In future, the minimum number of members of the county council will be 88 members (previously it was 86 members). The maximum number of members - taking into account the majority and equalizing seats - is 105 members (previously it was 103 members).
The calculation procedure for the distribution of seats and constituency allocation for the county elections is based on the maximum number process as defined by Sainte-Laguë / Schepers
