In some municipalities, Emmanuel Macron did not collect any votes. In others it is Marine Le Pen who displays a zero score. Fewer than 10 municipalities see Yannick Jadot come out on top, and it is not the major environmental strongholds who have instead voted Mélenchon. Nathalie Arthaud and Philippe Poutou did not win any city. In all polls, we find our share of astonishing scores. Here are those that we can remember for the first round of the presidential election, this Sunday, April 10.

  • In the smallest town in the Vosges, Maroncourt, the 12 registered failed to decide between Marine Le Pen, Emmanuel Macron and Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, with 3 votes each.
  • Marine Le Pen came first in the city of General de Gaulle, Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises.

Jean-Luc Melenchon

  • Also in the city of the former Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe, Le Havre.
  • Or even in Prades, the city of the current Prime Minister, Jean Castex.
  • Also with ministers, in Tourcoing (Darmanin) and Evreux (Le Maire).
  • And finally on the lands of François Hollande in Tulle.
  • On the other hand, with the deputy Insoumis François Ruffin, Jean-Luc Mélenchon only comes third, behind Marine Le Pen then Emmanuel Macron.
  • Unsurprisingly, he won 4% of the vote, in Sarkozyist land, in Neuilly in the Hauts-de-Seine.
