Register Online for 2021/22 Electoral Register

Next year's Register of Electors is now being compiled. To ensure that you and members of your household will be registered, complete and return this form IMMEDIATELY.

NOTES

A. BE SURE TO INCLUDE

  • Every person over 18 living at your address;
  • Any 17 year olds who will be 18 by 15 February next;
  • Any eligible person who normally lives at your address but is temporarily away;
  • The name and previous address of anyone listed over who has taken up residence in the past 2 years.

B. DO NOT INCLUDE

A visitor staying temporarily at your address.

C. CITIZENSHIP

While every resident is entitled to be registered, the registration authority (your city, county or city and county councils) needs to know a person's citizenship to determine the elections at which they may vote.

The right to vote is as follows:

  • Presidential Election and Referendum - Irish citizens
  • Dáil Election - Irish citizens and British citizens
  • European Parliament Election - Irish citizens and EU Member State citizens
  • Local Elections - All citizens resident in Ireland

D. TWO VERSIONS OF THE REGISTER

Registration authorities are required to publish two versions of the register:

(a) the full register; and

(b) the edited register.

The full register lists everyone who is entitled to vote and can only be used for an electoral or other statutory purpose.

EDITED REGISTER

The edited register contains the names and addresses of persons whose details can be used for a purpose other than an electoral or other statutory purpose e.g. for direct marketing use by a commercial or other organisation.

lf any member of the household wants their details to be included on the edited register, you should tick the IN option box in column (v) at part 3 of the form, otherwise tick OUT. If these boxes are left blank it will be assumed to be an OUT option. i.e that person will not appear on the edited register.

E. FURTHER INFORMATION

Further information on the register and the supplement to the register is available on the "Register of Electors" information leaflet at www.housing.gov.ie

F. PRIVACY STATEMENT

The Registration Authority requires electors to provide certain personal data in order to carry out legislative functions. The Registration Authority will treat all information and personal data that you provide as confidential, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and Data Protection Legislation. The Statutory provisions relating to the registration process are contained primarily in Part II of, and in the Second Schedule to, the Electoral Act 1992. Section 13A of the Electoral Act 1992 provides that a person who uses the register, for a purpose other than electoral or other statutory purpose is guilty of an offence.
