The Register of Electors

The Register of Electors

Since the implementation of the Electoral Act 2022, the Register of Electors is now a rolling document.

Accordingly, the registration process has changed. Even if you are already registered, you now need to add your PPSN, date of birth and Eircode. This will allow your local authority to confirm your details and help to ensure the accuracy of the electoral register. 

  • In the first instance, please use the Check the Register website to register, confirm/update your details or find further information.
  • Alternatively, paper forms (available here) can also be completed and returned to: Franchise Section, Waterford City & County Council, City Hall, The Mall, Waterford, X91PK15.

Who can vote ?
Citizenship determines the elections at which an elector may vote. At present the right to vote is as follows:

  • Irish citizens have full voting rights and may vote in every election and referendum;
  • British citizens may vote at Dáil and Local Elections;
  • EU citizens (other than British citizens) may vote at European and Local Elections;
  • Non-EU citizens may vote at Local Elections only.
