First Count begins in Waterford Local Elections

Count Staff sorting votesThe first count of our local elections has officially started.

Our returning officer for the day, Paul Johnston, announced the beginning of proceedings shortly after 7pm. This election will determine who will sit on Waterford City & County Council for the next 5 years.

Mr. Johnston addressed candidates, officials, volunteers, and observers present, highlighting the importance of accuracy and transparency in the counting process.

Each vote is carefully sorted and counted into a pigeon hole bearing the name of each candidate.

For those interested in following the progress and results of the count, updates will be available on the Waterford Elections Hub. You can also find real-time information and join the discussion on social media using the hashtag #WaterfordElections2024
