*You have to be registered to vote by the 8th of May*
Are you registered to vote? Some of you may know the answer, others won't. First off, go to CheckTheRegister.ie to see if you're on the register of electors. If you're registered, great. If not, don't worry! We'll guide you through it.
Check out the article below from SpunOut.ie. Also, you can call into Joe in the The Hut Youth centre and he will print all the forms, help you fill them out & they can be posted in the Post Office next door.
The deadline for applying for the Supplementary Register ahead of the referendum is Tuesday 8 May 2018
If you're not included in the register of electors for the upcoming referendum, then you can apply to be included on the supplementary register.
This application can be made at any time, but if there's an upcoming election or referendum that you want to vote in, you need to make sure your application is received up to 15 days before polling day. This does not include Sundays, public holidays and Good Friday, so make sure you take that into account.
To get on the supplement of the register, you need to fill out the RFA2 form which you can find here. You can also get this form in your post office, public library, or local authority. Get it signed by a member of the Gardaí (Bring ID).
Post it or bring it to your local authority, county council, or city council - you can find the details and address of your local authority, county council, or city council here. It is your responsibility to make sure it arrives on time so deliver by hand rather than post if you are submitting it close to the deadline.
Once this is done, your details will be added to the Register of Electors and you'll be able to vote in local, national and European elections as well as referendums if you are eligible to do so. ... See MoreSee Less
The elections are rolling around again. How exactly do you get on that register though? What if you can't make it to the polling station on election day? We've got the answers to these questions and more...
Important factors to consider when thinking about life after school!
Should you always pick your first choice on the CAO or are there other options to consider?
