Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, Alan Kelly has today (Tuesday) asked people to take a last opportunity to check that they are included in the register of electors for the general election.
“Even at this late stage there is an opportunity to be included in the register and to have your say about the future direction of our country,” the Minister said.
Application forms for inclusion in the supplement to the register are available from your city, county or city and county council and on-line at www.checktheregister.ie. Completed forms must be received by the registration authority for the area in which you reside no later than this evening.
To be registered, you must be an Irish or a British citizen, aged 18 years or over on polling day and ordinarily resident at the address at which you want to register.
There is still time to register, or to have your details corrected if you are already registered.
Eligible voters who are not on the register and wish to vote at the election may apply to get on the supplement.If you are already on the register and have moved address recently, you may apply to get on the supplement at your new address.
