A referendum concerning the establishment of the French Empire was held in France in November 1804. The officially-announced result showed a nearly unanimous French electorate approving the change in Napoleon Bonaparte's status from First Consul to Emperor of the French. About seven million voters were called to participate, of which 52.80% abstained.
