Just voted. Lots of Sarko ballots in the trash can, but it's no shocker that French teachers in Ottawa are a bunch of pinko-commies.

In 2007 the final polls tended to overestimate Sarkozy by about 1.5% not that this means we should expect a similar spread. As has been said earlier, French presidential elections are like US elections for president. They are always close. a really solid win means winning 53-47...let's not forget that Obama is viewed as having won a landslide over McCain in 2008 and the popular vote was just 51-46%...I suspect that Hollande will win by about a 5% margin.

Obama beat McCain 53% to 46%, not 51% to 46%.

Omg I'm getting really nervous now actually.  One question: is the Front de Gauche staying together for the parliamentary elections, or are the individual parties in it competing independently?

They agreed in 2011 that they'd keep the Front united for the parliamentary election. Their candidates are apparently ~80% PCF, ~20% PG, though they're contesting a handful of seats with assorted minor party and leftist independent candidates.

FTR, the PG currently holds two seats: Marc Dolez, a former PS deputy in the Nord who was one of the party's founding members, and Martine Billard, a former leftie Green deputy from Paris who joined the party in 2009 and whose constituency was 'exploded' by the redistricting. It is unlikely that she will be reelected.

I'll assume Hollande wins until the results tell us otherwise. Less than 2% margin if so.

Again, for those over here who care, I'll have a serious liveblog starting at 6PM/noon eastern. Once again, I'll request, and I'm sure Al will back me up on this, that nobody directly posts the leaked exit polls for those who like suspense and living in the dark about such stuff. Look it up yourself if you can't hold yourself, but don't post it here.

Thank's for the head's up. I'll definitely be following your liveblog.

Also, regarding leaked exit polls and such, would it not be acceptable to use tinytext or white font, as a sort of ad hoc spoiler tag?

I don't have a problem with people posting links to URLs where the details may be found, as long as the URLs themselves aren't spoilers. At any rate, it's only 1.5 hours. It shouldn't be hard to behave and not spoil the fun of others,

Irish exit polls are released around that time of the morning because of the complex counting of STV...

But the day after the election day, right ?

Not at 8am on election day (?).
