French nationals abroad – Overseas voting (December 15, 2016)


We want to remind French nationals abroad that they can vote abroad in the 2017 elections. The deadline for voter registration is December 31, 2016. All information on how to register is available on the ministry’s website.

An awareness campaign to promote voter registration was launched on the Internet, TV5 Monde, RFi and France 24.

On December 13, 2016, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development’s Elections Office responded on our Facebook pages to live questions, on an individual basis, from French nationals abroad regarding registration on the consular electoral rolls and voting procedures. All of these exchanges are available on the ministry’s Facebook pages.
