      The Guardian exit polling

      • The CDU and SPD are tied, although it seems the SPD is for now leading by a slim margin

      • The 3 left-of-center parties have a minority of seats together, meaning they couldn't form a government together if they wanted to

      • Die Linke is close to the electoral cut-off of entering parliament, and risks getting nothing this election (it appears this is not the case because Linke usually win more than 3 constituency seats, which invalidates the 5% threshold.)

      • The AfD and the FDP seem to be likely to get the same amount of votes that got in 2017

      • The Greens and SPD have grown by similar margins (but the current polling rise is the SPD's polling rise)

      How do you feel about the election as it stands? Also include any more live updates if you know of them.
