Dual nationality and citizenship, and external voting rights have been granted by a majority of countries for the last years. This article uses original data collected through a multi-sited survey among Senegalese migrants living in France and in the United States during the first round of Senegal’s 2012 presidential election to analyse the electoral behaviour of Senegalese migrants and social remittances between destination and origin countries. Senegalese migrants are found to be strongly associated with high level of electoral participation not only in their origin country but also in their host country for those having dual citizenship. Our data also reveal a large range of social remittances between destination and origin countries, which translate into voting recommendations that exert strong influence when they come from the migrants.
