Parliamentary elections were held in Germany on 10 April 1938. They were the final elections to the Reichstag during Nazi rule and took the form of a single-question referendum asking whether voters approved of a single list of Nazis and pro-Nazi ‘guest’ candidates for the 813-member Reichstag as well as the recent annexation of Austria. Turnout in the election was officially 99.5% with 98.9% voting ’yes’. In Austria official figures claimed 99.73% voted in favour with a turnout of 99.71%.
