Legislative Assembly 2024: How do you know which office to vote in and if you’re registered on the voter rolls?

The European elections are barely over before the French return to the polls! Following the dissolution of the National Assembly by Emmanuel Macron on the evening of June 9, new legislative elections took place on June 30 and July 7. Several voters who abstained in previous elections are planning to mobilize on this occasion.

But where to vote? How can you make sure you are registered correctly? Le Parisien takes the guesswork out of your questions.

How can I check my registration and my polling station?

If you voted in the European elections on June 9, the electoral rolls have not changed since then. This means you just need to come to the same polling station. If this is not the case and you want to vote in legislative elections, you must first check that you are registered on the electoral register.

On the website service-public.fr you can “query your electoral situation”, that is, check whether you are correctly registered in the lists, as well as the office you need to contact. After identifying yourself via France Connect, all you have to do is indicate the municipality in which you think you are registered, in France or abroad.

In a few seconds you will receive your national voter number, as well as the address of your polling station, its number, and your order number. This will let you know where to go to vote on June 30 and July 7, or where your proxy should go if you choose a proxy.

How can I find out my constituency and the candidates running in the elections?

If you don’t know your constituency for the next election, don’t worry. Find our simulator that allows you to find out which constituency you are in in seconds by simply typing in your address.

And to make your choice, you can also familiarize yourself with the list of all candidates declared for the prefecture in our special article. Simply enter your department and constituency in our module to access the names and political labels of your contestants.

What documents are needed to vote?

Contrary to popular belief, voter ID is not mandatory! This is recommended as it will make it easier for you to find yourself on the voter list and sign the voter list on D-Day. Each vote also includes a stamp confirming your participation. But if you lost it or didn’t receive it, don’t worry. At the polling station, all you need is you and your ID.

There are several options to verify your identity when voting. The most obvious is an ID card or passport, which can be used as long as it is valid or less than 5 years expired. You can also use other official documents if they are valid: Vitale card, driver’s license, disability card, hunting license or even military ID. A complete list of permits is available on the website service-public.fr.
