As reported by CNN, voting stations will all close by 8 p.m., and polling companies release usually reliable projections of the final result almost immediately afterward.

In the first round two weeks ago, voters rejected representatives of all the traditional mainstream political parties in France, with Macron and Le Pen topping an 11-strong field, taking 24 percent and 21 percent of the vote respectively.
