Befitting its title, which translates as To the Polls, Citizens, this comedy was timed for release during the French political elections of 1932. The plot revolves around the efforts by a wealthy industrialist (Leon Belieres) to win a seat in Parliament. His campaign trail is followed by hotshot journalist Claude Dauphin, who turns out to be a thorn in the industrialist's side. But even though the two men clash over political matters, Dauphin ends up winning the hand of the candidate's comely daughter (Rosinne Derean). American critics compared Aux Urnes, Citoyens favorably to the social satires of director Rene Clair.
