All French citizens aged eighteen or over are entitled to vote in elections, after they have registered on the electoral rolls. Elections usually take place on a Sunday and polling stations are often set up in local schools. Voters go to a booth and put their voting slip in an envelope which is placed in the ballot box (l'urne) supervised by an assesseur, who then utters the words a voté !
