The constituency of the Lozère (French: Circonscription de la Lozère) is a French legislative constituency in the Lozère département. Like the other 576 French constituencies, it elects one MP using the two-round system, with a run-off if no candidate receives over 50% of the vote in the first round.

Description[edit]

The constituency of Lozère is the only constituency within Lozère, making it one of only two such departments in metropolitan France (along with Creuse). The second constituency was abolished as a result of the 2010 redistricting of French legislative constituencies. Despite this adjustment the electorate in the seat remains low when compared to other constituencies.
