Local Elections

Local Elections are held every five years and offer you the chance to vote for the candidates you want to represent you and your community at local government level.

Every person aged 18 years or over, regardless of their citizenship, and who is a resident of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown is entitled to vote in the local elections for the electoral area in which they live. There are six local electoral areas in the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown administrative area, with each area electing a number of Councillors based on the size of its population. The Blackrock and Stillorgan areas will elect six Councillors each, and the Dundrum, Dún Laoghaire, Glencullen-Sandyford and Killiney-Shankill areas will elect seven Councillors each.

A list of all nominated candidates can be found at www.dlrcoco.ie/council-democracy/localelections-2019.
