Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually, though it is traditional in France to speak of "blancs et nuls" as being indistinguishable, this is the first election in France where they are reported separately. A first step towards the actual recognition of the "vote blanc".
At my counting table, in the first round, we had two "blancs" (one an empty envelope, the other had a piece of blank paper), and one "nul" (the envelope contained a bulletin each for Fillon and Le Pen, which delighted all four of us).

I'm picking about 10% "blancs" this time, which will be historic.
