Register of Electors Eligibility
Each local authority must put together and publish a list of voters in its area. This is called the Register of Electors.
To be eligible for inclusion in the Register of Electors, you must:
** Be at least 18 years old on the day the Register comes into force (15 February). You can add your name to the draft Register before you turn 18.
** Have been ordinarily resident in the State on 1 September in the year before the Register comes into force.
To add your details to the Register of Electors, you complete form RFA and return it to your local authority. You do not need to pay for postage. If you live in Dublin, you can register online at voter.ie if you have a verified MyGov account.
The Register of Electors is published on 1 February each year and comes into force on 15 February. To be entered on the published Register for 2021, you must have registered before 25 November 2020.
If the information in the Register is incorrect, or your situation has changed, you can complete form RFA1 and send it to your local authority by 25 November 2021 (to be included in the Register that comes into force on 15 February 2022).
If you have not registered on the draft register by 25 November, or your situation changes after this date, you can still register to vote by applying to the Supplement to the Register of Electors
Supplement to the Register of Electors:
If your name is not on the Register of Electors on 15 February, you can apply to be included in a supplement to it, using form RFA2. This will allow you to vote in any election or referendum held during the year.
You can apply at any time. However, you can only be included in the supplement used at an election or referendum if your local authority gets your application at least 15 days before polling day. Sundays, public holidays and Good Friday are not counted as days for this purpose.
If you have changed address, you use form RFA3 to apply for inclusion on the supplement at your new address. This will also remove you from the register for your previous address. There are detailed guidance notes on the form.
