Cultural Note: Élection

Public elections are held on Sundays, with a week's delay (two weeks in the élections présidentielles) between first and second rounds if absolute majority is not achieved immediately. Voters, who must present their carte d'électeur and proof of identity, collect slips and in the privacy of the polling booth choose the slip containing the name of their preferred candidate or list and place it in an envelope and then in the polling box or urne.
