Second round of legislative elections: participation up at midday

The French turned out in droves for the second round of early legislative elections this Sunday.

Turnout at noon was 26.6%, almost a full point higher than the same time last week.

Tour of the polling stations at 1 p.m. on TF1.

At the start of the summer holidays, it’s hard to find a better location. Because in La Grande-Motte (Hérault), it’s the nautical center on the beach that serves as a polling station, very busy this Sunday morning before going to enjoy the seaside. But don’t think that these early-morning vacationers on the beach haven’t done everything to organize themselves, as they explain in the TF1 report above.

Experienced assessors

In town, in Villeneuve-d’Ascq (North), the voters, holding a mandate for their loved ones, are therefore there, with an office set up especially for these proxies. The same feeling of great mobilization for this Parisian polling station, where the absentees have organized themselves. And here, no shortage of assessors. There, for the European elections and for the first round of the legislative elections, they naturally volunteered for this third day of voting in less than a month, now well versed in the exercise.

A civic duty accomplished that has given rise to some initiatives. You voted, this pizzeria in Caen (Calvados) has good news for you: a 50% reduction on presentation of your duly stamped voter card. One more incentive for those who lack motivation.
