National Socialist Germany: Anschluss of Austria Ballot

Aesthetic Manipulation Brignull's "Trick Questions" Interface Interference


Nazi Germany


7 years ago

Voting ballot from 10 April 1938. The ballot text reads “Do you agree with the reunification of Austria with the German Reich that was enacted on 13 March 1938, and do you vote for the party of our leader Adolf Hitler?” The large circle is labelled “Yes”, the smaller “No”.
The circle size discrepancy is notable enough as a dark pattern, but also the joining of two very separate questions into one answer is a dark pattern.
