9:33: Hello, these are estimates made by the constitution based on the census in several polling stations, which close at 7 p.m. For Ipsos-Sopra Steria, estimated by France Télévisions, the results of the first 200 ballots from each office used and the final number from these offices are transmitted. An algorithm based mainly on previous results then takes care of creating a national estimate in order to smooth out the electoral specifics of polling stations.
