On 15 February 2017, 88.6% of adults living in France and of French nationality were registered to vote. In the last twelve months, 6.5% of the potential electorate registered or re-registered on the electoral rolls voluntarily, usually due a change in their municipality of residence. Managers and higher intellectual professions re-registered more often after a period of non-registration.
