The results of the first round of the legislative elections for France’s 577 circonscriptions (constituencies) have officially been confirmed by the Interior Ministry.

This shows many of the candidates who are likely to compete in the second round on July 7 although the final list will not be announced until later this week. 

In many constituencies candidates of either the left-wing bloc or presidential camp are expected to drop out to give a candidate who is not from the dominant far-right Rassemblement National (RN) the best chance of winning. 

RN – yesterday's big winners with 33.15% of the vote – will compete for the highest number of seats, 485. 

The left-wing alliance Nouveau Front Populaire will compete in 446, and those supported by the governing party of Emmanuel Macron in 319 (although these numbers will change as candidates drop out). 

However, a second round of voting will not take place for all seats, as in 76 constituencies, a candidate gained over 50% of the votes cast yesterday, enough to automatically win. 

This includes 39 MPs for the RN, and 32 for the Nouveau Front Populaire.

How did people vote in your area? 

A flurry of maps and graphs have been released showing how votes were cast yesterday.

Generally, the RN performed well in their traditional bastions of the north and south-east, where the majority of candidates already elected in the first round won their seats.

They are also leading the vote in a further 258 seats, mainly in rural areas. 

They did not perform as well in larger cities, including the capital, and did not lead in any of the seats designated for overseas voters. 

At the same time, the party performed well in some of France’s overseas territories and departments, including in Réunion. 

The Nouveau Front Populaire performed well in cities, particularly in the Parisian suburbs, where many of their first-round wins were made. 

They also performed well in the centre of France, the south-west, and Brittany. 

Candidates backed by the president’s camp only came first in 69 constituencies, largely in the west of France and western Parisian suburbs.

Where can I see my local results? 

You can find maps showing voting results in your constituency from the following sources: 

  • FranceInfo has four maps showing how each of the three main groups – and the right-wing Les Républicains not backing the RN – performed. The maps show where a party’s candidate finished in the elections, as well as if they qualified for the second round there.

  • BFMTV has a series of interactive maps showing the difference in votes for each party in the first round of the 2012, 2017, 2022, and 2024 legislative elections. This page also has an interactive map at the bottom showing the seats of the candidates which have already been elected. 

  • In addition, the news site also has a map showing which party won the most votes in your commune. Whilst the elections are not for communes but circonscriptions, this gives an idea of how votes were cast more locally to you. You can type in your postcode to see which party gained the most votes. 

  • Le Parisien also has an interactive map based on how many candidates will compete in the second round. Circonscriptions in green are where MPs have already been elected, those in orange are set to see a two-way duel, and those in yellow have three or more candidates currently set to run in next Sunday’s vote. By hovering over your area you can see the vote share for each major party.
