General Election - Voter Registration still open

If you are not registered to vote, you still have until next Tuesday 9 February to become added to the Supplement to the Register of Electors.

People who are eligible to vote but are not registered as electors still have time to apply for entry in the supplement to the register of electors to be published before polling day.

To be eligible for inclusion in the supplement, a person must be 18 years of age or over on or before polling day and must be ordinarily resident in the State.

For inclusion in the supplement to the register, a person must complete the relevant application form, which can be downloaded from or can be obtained from City, County or City and County Councils (registration authorities). An application form will need to be received by the registration authority for the area in which the applicant is resident not later than Tuesday 9 February 2016.

An application for inclusion in the supplement to the register must be signed by the applicant in the presence of a member of the Garda Síochána from the applicant’s local Garda station who must first be satisfied as to the person’s identity before signing, dating and stamping the form. The Garda may request photographic or other identification.

Where the applicant establishes in writing that he or she is unable to progress the application in this way, the form can be signed by the applicant in the presence of an official of the registration authority who is satisfied as to his or her identity. Again, photographic or other identification may be required. If neither option is viable due to physical illness or physical disability, the application form must be accompanied by a medical certificate.
