About Register of Electors
Your Vote is your Voice - Use It!
The 2016/17 Register of Electors comes into force on 15 February 2016 and will be used at any poll that may be called in the period to 14 February 2017.
A draft of the 2016/17 Register was published on 1 November 2015 and, as part of our public information campaign, was made available for examination in post offices, community libraries and Garda stations as well as online at www.checktheregister.ie until 25 November.
If your name is not entered on the 2016/2017 Register, you can apply to have your name entered on the supplement to the Register up to approximately 17 days before a poll (Specifically, more than 14 days before polling day, excluding Sundays, public holidays and certain other excluded days). A Form for this purpose is available on the sidebar on the left, or at your local post office, community library or Garda Station. You can also obtain one by phoning Kildare County Council on 045-980201 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that those included on the register of electors as other than Irish citizens, and have now become Irish citizens, must complete a RFA5 form in order to have their entry updated. This form may be downloaded from the side-bar on the left.
If you have any query concerning the register, please either ring 045-980201 or e-mail email@example.com and a member of staff in our franchise section will be happy to assist you.
