Polling booths not mandatory

For the election of the works council in France, voters must be able to cast their vote in private, but not necessarily in a polling booth.

In practice, privacy can be obtained in a polling booth, a room adjacent to the voting room or a partitioned part of the voting room.

Therefore, the election cannot be invalidated solely on the basis that polling booths were not made available to voters.
