This work establishes the relaxation limit from a bipolar Euler-Poisson system with friction towards a bipolar drift-diffusion system. A weak-strong formalism is developed and, within this framework, a dissipative weak solution of the bipolar Euler-Poisson system converges in the high-friction regime to a conservative, bounded away from vacuum, strong solution of the bipolar drift-diffusion system. This limiting process is based on a relative entropy identity for the bipolar fluid system.
