Seine-Saint-Denis (25.23%), Moselle (30.53%) and Val-d’Oise (30.80%) are the departments where the French went to vote the least at 5 p.m., for the second round of legislative elections.

In 2017 at the same time, the participation rate was 21.11% in Seine-Saint-Denis, 29.34% in Moselle and 25.59% in Val-d’Oise.

Turnout stood at 18.99% at 12 p.m. in the second round

At noon, the turnout stood at 18.43% nationwide, a figure slightly up 0.5 points from the first round last Sunday at the same time.

Turnout was also up slightly from the second round of the 2017 legislative elections: at the time, it had reached 17.75% at noon in metropolitan France.

The second round still in progress, soon a first estimate of the final abstention

The vote for the second round of the legislative elections continues everywhere in metropolitan France. You still have until 6 p.m. to vote if you have not yet cast a ballot in the ballot box, and even 8 p.m. in some municipalities.

We will know in a few tens of minutes the figures for participation at 5 p.m., before a first estimate of the final abstention made by the Elabe Institute.

In the first round, less than one in two voters had moved: the abstention rate had reached 52.49% at the national level, a record for such an election.

No vote estimation, no results released before 8 p.m.

Who will be your MP? The rules do not change: if we will have a first estimate of the final abstention shortly after 5 p.m., it will however be necessary to wait for the closing of the last polling stations, at 8 p.m., to know the first tendencies of the ballot.

It is only then, and not before, that BFMTV will be able to reveal the estimates of the Elabe Institute.
