18:37 : and @Patience We will see this later when the abstinence score is refined. Patience…

18:36 : Hello, Pierre. Do we know why there are so many people waiting at the polls?

18:36 : Can these long queues be explained by a later mobilization to vote, which will lead to overcrowding of offices? Instead of a more even distribution throughout the day?

18:36 : Unheard of late in the morning in Eguiles (near Aix-en-Provence). I returned there in the morning.

18:36 : Respect to all those who have waited so long to fulfill their duty as a citizen-citizen 👏 In my small village of Du, don’t wait… Good evening everyone

18:36 : In our village, the elders said that they had never seen so many people at a polling station!

18:35 : There are no problems in my office in Sartrouville, and yet people are constantly leaving the office when I come in, people arrive when I leave. Maybe it’s lucky that voters come gradually, and not in chunks? In any case, there were a few assessors, those who were at recess, we saw in my class next door.

18:35 : You keep telling me about your little tour of the polling station in the comments to the live broadcast.

18:29 : Hello, Pierre. Good attendance this morning at the French Institute in Cologne, very good organization, everything is very smooth. For the first time in my life, I hesitated to the last second, and it was the default choice.

18:29 : Unprecedented mobilization at my 18th constituency, 1 hour wait this afternoon when I have never queued in 20 years

18:29 A: I haven’t measured, but in the 20 years that I’ve been voting, I’ve never waited that long to vote.

18:26 : In the end, the number of participants may increase! If we didn’t spend 2 hours voting, as happens in many places, it would grow faster. Here in Moulon, a small village in the Gironde, at 18:00 participation is 82% according to the mayor’s office, and ends at 19:00.

18:25 : No waiting at my polling station in Villenave-d’Ornon in the Bordeaux metropolitan area, and for good reason: an abandoned office, one or two voters at a time. A little sad atmosphere.

18:25 : Hello, the hour of waiting is also in Saint-Remy-le-Chevreuse, where we usually have about 15 minutes.

18:25 : You had to wait 50 minutes to vote in my Paris office XX, waiting in Montreal… And on the other hand, at the beginning of the day we were only 7 people in a hall with 197 seats to see Abuela, a fantastic film Brilliantly shot Spanish language, albeit a bit predictable! Darkrooms of Election Sunday Victims?

18:25 : You keep telling me about your presidential evening in the comments of the live broadcast.

18:21 : You stupidly went to vote on foot or by car? In the English Channel, voters from Benoville went to the polls on horseback, says Western France.

18:20 : Don’t forget that you can follow our presidential evening as well as the France 2 special in our direct.

18:26 : Our compatriots abroad are massively mobilized. Thus, a crowd gathered at the (infamous) Heysel Stadium in Brussels. Our comrades from Free Belgium talking about a few hundred meters of tail. The police are trying to lighten the traffic, but there are a lot of people there, so it’s difficult.says a police spokesman.

18:15 : 🇫🇷[#Election2022 présidentielle – 1er tour]

#presidential election2022 #IVote

18:20 : Otherwise, in Morepas (Yvelines), Marcel Cato, 103 years old, did his civic duty. Or the equivalent of the combined ages of the three people who are performing live today 🙂

18:21 : Let’s start with this strategy of the municipality of Lamonjoie (Lot-et-Garonne), which fights against abstinence by organizing an aperitif based on sausage and a small cannon in the municipality. Believe it or not, participation peaked around happy hour. Sending : 65% vs. 29% in France at noon.

18:07 : Good evening . My colleague Pierre Gaudon will be watching election night with you on this live stream. In addition, I pass the baton to him without delay. Have a nice evening !

The matchday 31 of Ligue 1 between Brest and Nantes (1:1) was interrupted for ten minutes after an attempted invasion of spectators on the ground – another example of a season marred by overcrowding.

18:08 : Plouisec, a small town in the Côte d’Armor, this morning 1 hour waiting for a vote… Are there more participants despite the rates you announced??

17:55 : Hello FI, more than an hour of waiting here also at my polling place in Paris 11

17:55 : The same in the 15th in Paris: very bad organization with fewer jurors than in all other elections. Scandalous.

17:33 : Waiting in line for hours to vote at my polling place in Paris People are giving up, tired of waiting. Obviously, there is an organizational problem that gives rise to an obvious democratic problem. https://t.co/Fhajq6mFGq

17:35 : Hello In Paris, more than an hour of waiting at several polling stations since the end of the morning. Evaluators ask to come back later, indicating that they are not sure that everyone will be able to vote before closing. Are these special cases or do you have identical echoes from other offices (which could qualify the conclusions on participation)?

17:32 : @olivier74940 This is indeed what some voters in Paris are saying, including. Not knowing if this expectation is due to the crowd or organizational problems.

17:34 : Decreased participation? Not at our polling place in Annecy-le-Vieux. Over an hour of waiting!
