How Do I ?

Voting in elections

Every local authority in Ireland is responsible for compiling and publishing a list of voters in its area. This is called the Register of Electors or the Electoral Register. Anyone can inspect this Register and it is available in all local authority offices, post offices, Garda stations and public libraries.

Your Voice is Important!

The published Register contains the voter’s name, address, polling station and category of voter. For inclusion in the Register of Electors you must complete application form RFA which is available from your local authority, or using the button opposite, and returned to your Local Authority Office.

A new draft Register is compiled each year and is published on 1 November.

If you are on the draft Register of Electors but your details are incorrect you may claim to have a correction made by completing an application form. Please click to download
