Elections - so it's a runoff

April 23, 2012

Election Day


France (2012)

First, the internet is broken at my apartment again. Second outage in two weeks. Last time it was during the week, this time over the weekend.

So, it's election time in France (or rather elections were yesterday, see first point for explanation for the tardiness of this), and that means that election posters are up. One thing that I appreciate about France in this season is that the political posters are confined to these sign boards that are put up specifically for elections.

The runoff election is between the candidates in slots 3 and 10. Note that the candidate in slot 2 did not poll that well... came in third.
