There's still time to register to vote - here’s how...

Gotta be in to win!

Health, education and childcare are just a few of the issues that many people will be looking to have their say on when we go to polls on Friday February 26th.

Almost 70,000 people were added to the register last year alone in the run up to the historic Marriage Equality Referendum – so be sure you are eligible to use your vote on the day.

If you fall into the following groups, you’ll have to get yourself on the register:

  • First-time voters
  • Have recently moved house
  • Require a postal vote 

You have until February 9th to be added to the supplementary register of electors. Getting on the supplementary register of electors is straightforward and easy. Here’s how:

  1. Download the RFA2 form
  2. Get it signed and stamped by a member of An Garda Síochána
  3. Then return it to your local authority office (list of local authorities here)

Changed address?

If you are already on the register and have moved from one constituency to another or even within the same constituency you can apply for entry to the supplementary register at your new address.

If you want to change your address you must ask your local authority to remove your name from the register in respect of your old address. You can apply to Change your address using this form and you must now be living at your new address.

Make sure you get registered so that you can #UseYourVote and have a say on the issues that affect you – you might not get the chance for another five years.
