Early May 2024, 49.5 million people were registered on the French electoral roll to vote in the European elections on June, 9th, i.e. 2.2 million more than in the 2019 European elections. Among them, 1.6 million lived abroad and were registered at a consulate, 269,000 were citizens of another European Union country living in France and 222,000 were registered on specific lists for New Caledonia.

In mainland France and the French overseas departments, 95% of French people of voting age were registered to vote, the same proportion as in 2022. The number of people registered to vote has increased by 536,500 since the 2022 presidential election. This increase is linked to demographic changes: the number of automatic registrations of young people who have reached the age of 18 has outnumbered the number of deaths. Over this period, 2.6 million French people voluntarily registered or re-registered on an electoral roll, most often as a result of moving house. More than half of them registered online.

As five years ago, the Portuguese were the most numerous Europeans registered to vote in France.
