French people are voting in regional elections, the first electoral test since last month’s Paris attacks, in which 130 people were killed.
Opinion polls suggest there will be a strong showing for the far-right National Front (FN).
The centre-right led by former President Nicolas Sarkozy is expected to win in most regions at the expense of the governing Socialist Party.
Sunday’s first round will be followed by a run-off on 13 December.
French regions have wide powers over local transport, education and economic development.
