Live: French Run-Off Election!

Today’s the day! Check back often; I will be providing updates.

Update 4: First exit polls indeed reveal Macron as the winner, taking more than 65 percent of the vote. Holy mackerel.

Update 3: Polls have closed with the exception of larger cities. Their polls are set to close at 8:00pm.

Macron is still expected to win pretty easily. I’m not holding my breath for a Le Pen upset, but I’m highly interested in the final result margin. The closer it is, the better Front National will perform in the coming years, especially if Macron doesn’t deliver in his first term.

Update 2: Turnout by 5:00pm jumped to 65.3% of voters, which is still the lowest among the past four presidential elections. Expected overall turnout may reach 75% by the time polls close.

Update 1: Very low turnout. France 24 reports that turnout at noon was 28.2%.
