Despite his advanced age (84), poor health, and lack of enthusiasm for holding any elected office, Paul von Hindenburg wins the first round of the second (and last) election of Reichspräsident (President of the Reich) in Weimar Germany.

Hindenburg is the incumbent and receives 49.6% of the votes and Adolf Hitler receives 30.2%. Because Hindenburg doesn't have an absolute majority, there is a second round of voting in April which Hindenburg will win.
