French term or phrase: voix émises?
L’élection du lauréat se fait à la majorité absolue des voix émises au scrutin secret ; si après deux tours de scrutin, aucun des candidats n’a obtenu cette majorité, il est procédé à un scrutin définitif à la majorité relative.

Voix émises anybody? Is it a voice vote, like aye or no? Just a guess.

Explanation:
No, it's a secret ballot (au scrutin secret), "absolute majority of votes cast" would be my translation. Good luck
