Arriving at voting stations this morning, signs of yesterday’s logistical problems were evident. On the blackboard of one polling station were noted the start & finish times of their bureau:

Début: 14h22
Fin: 1h26

Polls were due to open at 7am, and close twelve hours later, and staff had been up through the night, tallying the votes. As results were finalised, noted, and confirmed, the electoral officials were starting to fall asleep. It had been a long day, and by the looks of it, an even longer night.
