If you wish to vote in the upcoming referendum you need to be on the Register of Voters.

The closing date for inclusion on the Register is Tuesday 8th May.

You can only vote in the referendum if you are an Irish citizen living in the Republic of Ireland or have been out of the country for less than 18 months.

You cannot register online.

Check if you are on the Register at checktheregister.ie.

If you cannot find your details there you can check the printed register at your local Garda station, post office, library or Council offices.

If you find you are not on the register you will need to complete the relevant application form – which can be obtained at the same offices.

You can also download the forms online at checktheregister.ie

You will require form RFA2 if you are not currently on the register.

Form RFA3 is needed if you have changed your address and wish to vote at your new address.

Form RFA5 is needed if you have now become an Irish citizen and wish to be eligible to vote in all election/referendums.

The completed form must be brought to your local Garda station together with photo ID. The form needs to be signed by a Garda and stamped with the station stamp.

It then needs to be either posted or delivered to your local City or County Council offices.

As Monday the 7th May is a Bank Holiday the Council offices will be closed.

The address of all 31 Council offices are listed below.
