Military, train, Traveller, SDF, Mariner: where to register to vote?

Verified 28 April 2022 - Legal and Administrative Information Directorate (Prime Minister)

To vote, you must be registered on the electoral list of a commune. Parked military personnel, trainmen, travellers, homeless persons and mariners must register on the electoral list of the municipality with which they have a specific attachment.

Military

You can register to vote in one of the following communes:

  • Home
  • The municipality in which you have been subject to local taxes (housing tax, company property tax, property tax on built or unbuilt properties) for at least 2 years
  • Common to your residence, if you have been effectively and continuously resident there for at least 6 months
  • Common place where you have the obligation to reside as a civil servant
  • Municipality where the business, of which you are the majority or sole partner for at least 2 years, has been included in the role of municipal contributions for at least 2 years

Regardless of where you are parked, and if none of these communes matches your situation, you can apply to be registered on the electoral list of one of the following communes:

  • Commune of birth
  • Commune of your last home
  • Common of your last residence, provided that it was at least 6 months
  • Commune where one of your parents (up to 4th degree) was born, registered or registered on the electoral roll
  • Common place where your spouse or one of your spouses parents (up to 4th degree) registered or registered on the electoral roll

If none of these municipalities is located in France, you can request your registration on the electoral list of the municipality of your recruitment office.

FYI  

your husband can apply for registration on the same list of electors as yours, provided he provides proof of marriage.
