2024 Legislative Elections. Four figures to visualize the mobilization in the second round in Lorraine

The European and then legislative elections were synonymous witha renewed mobilization for many LorrainersAfter a first round which put the RN in the lead with more than one vote in three, the political forces decided to form a bloc with many withdrawals in the event of a three-way race.

Between the first and second rounds, the national participation rate remained relatively stable with almost 67% of voters. What about in Lorraine? Spatial and sociological analysis… we summarize the mobilization in Lorraine in four figures.

The Meuse and the Vosges are mobilizing more

In terms of mobilization, people registered on the electoral lists of the Meuse or some Vosges find their way to the ballot boxes more easily. The two departments respectively showed second-round participation rates of 69.3% and 68.9%.. A finding that can be observed for all types of ballot. For example, during the last European elections, nearly 54% of Meuse residents voted as well as 55% of Vosges residents.

Conversely, Moselle is more reluctant to vote than its Lorraine neighbours. During the last election on 7 July, 64% of those registered on the lists went to vote. A figure well below the national average. Mobilisation is still largely on the rise in the department. During the second round in 2022, only 39% of Mosellans voted compared to 44% in Meurthe-et-Moselle, 47% in Meuse and Vosges.

Lower participation at the Luxembourg border

At the municipal level, we observe a low participation rate at the Luxembourg border, around Longwy and ThionvilleWe thus note the 2nd worst score in Moselle in Herserange (50.7%), just behind Knutange (48.1%).

In the Vosges, on the contrary, two communes show an abstention rate of 0%. It’s about of Hardancourt and RapeyOn the third step of the podium, we find the Vosges commune of Varmonzey with a mobilization of 95.7%.

Rural communities vote more

After analyzing the density of the Lorraine municipalities, we note that the People living in more urbanized areas are less likely to turn out than rural voters. Rural municipalities show an average participation rate of nearly 75%. In small towns and large urban centers, there is a respective mobilization of 67% and 66% in the second round.

We note low mobilization scores in many Moselle urban centers such as Florange (57%), Woippy (58%) and Fameck (58%).

Disparities according to standard of living

Far beyond spatial analysis, social factors such as income levels reveal more about votingTo estimate it, we based ourselves on the median income recorded in municipalities not subject to statistical confidentiality.

In Lorraine, the disparities are striking. In the municipalities where the median income is the lowest, only 6 out of 10 people went, compared to 7 out of 10 in the municipalities where the income is the highest. A strong turnout is thus to be noted in Dorrmatemont (78.3%), Fléville-devant-Nancy (78.6%) or Plesoins (82.7%).
