Students have until tomorrow to register for vote

People wishing to check whether they are registered can do so at checktheregister.ie

 

Students who have registered to vote since the European and local elections took place last year will have to contact their local authorities by the close of business on Wednesday, January 22nd, to see if they are eligible to cast their vote in next month’s general election.

As the election is taking place before February 15th when the updated register for the register of electors 2019-2020 becomes valid, students who may have registered since last May will have to see if they can be added to the supplementary register.

Anyone wishing to register has until the close of business on Wednesday to return the relevant forms to their local authority. Students wishing to check whether they are registered can do so at checktheregister.ie .

Registration forms can be downloaded from the checktheregister.ie website or collected from the local authority. Completed forms will need to be signed by a member of the Garda and returned before the January 22nd deadline.
