If you're not registered, there is time to apply for inclusion
in the Supplement in order to vote at the referendums
The referendums will take place on Friday, 22 May 2015. To vote in the referendum you must be an Irish Citizen who meets the qualifying conditions, including a requirement to be 18 years or over on polling day and ordinarily resident at the address at which you want to register. If you are on the register and have moved address recently, you may apply to get on the supplement at your new address.
You cannot vote unless you're on the Register of Electors. Have you checked recently? Eligible voters who are not on the register and wish to vote at the referendums should complete the supplement application form. The form is available from your City, County or City and County Councils (these are the registration authorities) and on-line at www.checktheregister.ie. Completed forms must be received by the registration authority for the area in which you reside by Tuesday, 5 May 2015.
Your application must be signed in the presence of a member of the Garda Sìochàna from your local Garda Station or, if you establish in writing that you cannot do so, then in the presence of an official of your City, County or City and County Council. In either case, photographic and other identification may be required and should be brought with you.
If neither option is viable due to a physical illness or physical disability, the application form must be accompanied by a medical certificate.
Supplement to the Postal and Special Voters Lists
If you are eligible to vote by post, or are unable to vote in person due to a physical illness or physical disability and resident in a hospital, nursing home or similar institution, and you are not on the Postal Voters List or Special Voters List, you can apply for inclusion in the supplement to these lists. Application forms are available from City, County or City and County Councils. Completed forms must be received by the registration authority for the area in which you reside by Saturday, 25 April 2015.
