Sunday 28th June 2020: Epeigné-les-Bois – 2nd Round elections.....

Mairie @Epeigné-les-Bois

Covid-19 voting precautions:
Instructions include: all voters must wear masks, clean hands entering and exiting the Salle des Fêtes and no more than three voters inside at any one time. 

More than three months after the 1st Round of the municipal elections (Sunday 15th March), the 2nd Round will be held this Sunday. The 2nd Round had originally been scheduled for Sunday 22nd March but was postponed due to Covid-19. 

Following the 1st Round 10 new councilors for the 11 seats on Epeigné's Conseil were elected. Two candidates – Ludovic Guillon (49.47%) and Dominique Hisbergue (49.47%) narrowly missed getting the magic 50%. Both tied on 49.47% with 94 votes each. They are the two candidates this Sunday. Votes can be cast between 8am and 6pm.

Whatever the result of Sunday's vote it will be good to have a conseil with a new mandate. The old conseil held its final meeting last evening. 

Details of the 1st Round vote:
62,18 % des citoyens d'Épeigné-les-Bois sont allés voter à l'occasion de ce 1er tour des municipales. Ce chiffre était de 73,31 % en 2014 (soit une baisse de -11,13 points). D'autre part, 2,06 % des suffrages n'ont pas été admis car estimés invalides.
