 About Register of Electors

Your Vote is your Voice - Use It!

The 2018/19 Register of Electors came into force on 15 February 2018 and will be used at any poll that may be called in the period to 14 February 2019.

A draft of the 2019/20 Register was published on 1 November 2018 and, as part of our public information campaign, is 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 2018/19 Register, you can apply to have your name entered on the supplement to the Register up to approximately 17 days before a poll. Forms for this purpose are 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: regelectors@kildarecoco.ie

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 regelectors@kildarecoco.ie
