Yes, but in order to participate in political elections, you have to be registered on the electoral roll. Registration is automatic for 18-year-olds, under certain conditions, as well as for French nationals obtaining citizenship as of 2019.
It is done at the town hall during the opening hours of the reception.
How does it work?
Every French person who becomes of age is automatically registered on the electoral roll, provided that he or she has completed the following steps citizen census at the time of his 16th birthday. The town hall informs the new young voter by mail of his or her registration, without him or her having to take any steps. If, however, the registration could not take place (late census, moving after the census, ...), it is possible to regularize the situation with the town hall.
If you find yourself in another situation (moving house, first registration...) you must take the initiative of the request! It is possible to register all year round either at the town hall, online or by post.
All the terms and conditions of registration are indicated on the website. https://www.service-public.fr/
