There is no more time to waste, registrations for the European elections in town hall close tomorrow Friday May 3. All French people of age are required to vote for the election of France’s representatives to the European Parliament this June 9.

A few more people arrive for this penultimate day, at the Elections department of the Tarbes town hall around ten o’clock to register for the European elections before registration closes.

This is the case of Lydie Olmo, 89 years old, who is carrying out the final administrative procedures in order to validate her registration. The octogenarian comes for the first time to register at the Tarbes Town Hall. Indeed, previously living in the Pyrénées-Orientales, she came to change her polling station by declaring her new address in order to participate in the vote in June. “Even at my age, we have to travel to vote, it’s important for the country.”

And she is not the only one to have moved today, several people similar to Lydie’s case came to change their polling station. Since January 1, the elections services have recorded 764 registrations “knowing that some are still being validated explains Elodie Bénard, in charge of Elections. The employee notes a significant number of registrations today directly at the town hall or on the public service website.
