When is the General Election Taking Place?  A General Election will take place on Saturday 8th February 2020 with polling between the hours of 7.00 am and 10.00 pm.

Who Can Vote in this General Election? Only persons on the Register of Electors 2019-2020 (which remains in effect until 14 February 2020) or on the Supplement to the Register (which remains open up to and including Wednesday 22 January) can vote. To be registered to vote at this election, you must be an Irish or British citizen, be ordinarily resident in the State and be 18 years or over on polling day.

How do I know if I am registered to vote?

Step 1: Check online at checktheregister.ie if your details are included on the 2019-2020 electoral register. Alternatively, people can check us directly on registerofelectors@dlrcoco.ie  or telephone 01 2054880.  If your details are included correctly no further action is necessary.

Step 2: If your details are not included on the 2019-2020 register you should contact us directly at registerofelectors@dlrcoco.ie  and we can check if your details are included in the supplement to the register of electors. If your details are included in the supplement to the register of electors no further action is required.

Step 3: If your details are not included in either the register or the supplement to the register you should obtain the appropriate application (or download it from checktheregister.ie) and complete the relevant form and, before signing the declaration, bring it along with photo ID to your local Garda station and sign it in the presence of a Member of An Garda Síochána, who will then stamp the form.  

Forms must reach us on or before 22 January 2020 in order for  to be registered for this election.

Certification of identity is required for entry to the supplement either by a member of the Gardaí at your local Garda Station, who will witness your signature and stamp your form; (if you can’t get to a Garda station contact us for more information) OR via voter.ie using MyGovID.

 

If you are not on the Register, Supplementary Register or did not fill in voter.ie application on line and you wish to vote at the next General Election you will need to:

  • Fill in supplement form (RFA2, RFA3 or RFA5)  and return it to your local authority by close of business on 22nd January 2020. Please return your completed form to: Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Register of Electors Section, Dundrum Office Park, Off Main Street, Dundrum, Dublin 14, D14 YY00 or Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, County Hall, Marine Road, Dún Laoghaire, Co. Dublin.

OR

If you are registered to use MYGov Id you can change your details online at voter.ie

If you have any further queries please contact registerofelectors@dlrcoco.ie /01 2054880.

Important - If you submitted forms for inclusion on the new register 2020/2021 you are not registered to vote as this Register does not commence until 15th February 2020. 

The onus is on the Elector to check that they are correctly registered to vote.
