The woman, aged 86, collapsed and died just after putting her slip in the ballot box. The Dijon town hall confirmed she had suffered a heart attack, French media reported.
Emergency services were called to the polling station, a primary school in the centre of the city, at 12.46 yesterday afternoon.
The station was closed for an hour while paramedics tried to resuscitate the woman.
