On Sunday 14 and Sunday 21 March, French voters will elect the Councils that govern the 26 administrative regions of the country — 22 in mainland France and 4 overseas. Regional Councilmen are elected in a two-round, closed-list proportional representation process. They in turn elect the President of the Region, who will head the regional executive body for six years.
