French people living in Cork will be able to vote in their native country’s General election this Sunday as Cork City Hall is an official polling station in the first round of the French general election.
Polling booths and ballot boxes will be located in the foyer at Millennium Hall following a request to Cork City Council from the French Embassy.
Polling will take place between 8am and 6pm, on the same day as the Cork City Marathon.
Lord Mayor, Cllr Des Cahill said: “When Cork City Hall is used as an official polling station for other European countries, it is a great example of the European family that we are all part of working together and of Cork city playing its part. ”
Polling will also take place at City Hall in the second round of voting on June 18.
Cork City Hall was also an official polling station in France’s Presidential election last month.
