The Constitutional Council announced on Wednesday that it had noted irregularities during the second round of the presidential election in polling stations 3 and 4 in the town of Francheville, in western Lyon. Blank ballots were made available to voters.
The Elders indicated that, “the presence of documents other than the ballot papers of the candidates constitutes an irregularity likely to influence the voters and undermine the sincerity of the ballot”. Consequently, the Constitutional Council canceled the 1207 votes of these two offices.
Across the town, Emmanuel Macron was well ahead of Marine Le Pen in the second round, winning 72.57% of the vote.
