Following the dissolution of the National Assembly, the French are invited to elect their new deputies. Is it still possible to register on your commune's electoral roll before the June 30 vote?

A new national suffrage is being organized in France over the next few weeks. The French are set to elect their deputies on Sunday June 30 and July 7, 2024. These early elections follow Emmanuel Macron's decision to dissolve the National Assembly, after the results of the European elections, revealed this Sunday, June 9, 2024.

MPs are once again putting their seats on the line, and these upcoming elections could change the French political landscape for years to come.

But first, you have to vote. And this civic action is not necessarily easy for everyone. If you've moved house or recently reached the age of majority, for one reason or another you may not be registered to vote in your commune. Does this mean you won't be able to vote in these general elections?

European elections 2024: how to register to vote?
On June 9, 2024, the French will be invited to go to the polls to elect their representatives to the European Parliament. But first, you need to be registered on the electoral roll. We explain how. [Read more]

First of all, we advise you to check your details: the public service website lets you find out which commune you belong to for the elections, and which polling station you can vote at. If you're not on the electoral roll in your commune of residence, you can change your address and apply to your local town hall for registration. But will this change of address be taken into account in time for the June 30 vote?

The official rules stipulate that voter registration must be completed before the 6th Friday before the first round of the election, in order to be taken into account. You must therefore have been registered on your town hall's electoral roll before May 24.

These early parliamentary elections are extraordinary, however, and many people had hoped that the rules would be relaxed for the occasion. However, our colleagues at 20 Minutes were able to confirm with the Ministry of the Interior " that there is no additional deadline for registering on the lists. The election will take place on the basis of the electoral lists drawn up on the date of the decree (i.e. June 9) ". It is therefore too late to change your voting location before June 30.

If you've run out of time, don't worry: you can always vote by proxy to make your voice heard as a citizen.
