Each candidate in the election will have their main priorities and if elected they will have an influence on Council decisions. Have a look at the candidates in your local electoral area. Which of the prospective candidates from your electoral area share your views? They may become your representative in the Council Chamber for the next 5 years.
During every local election seats are won and lost on a handful of votes which is why your vote counts. For more information on Councillors and their role, who is a candidate in your area and the local election voting process please go to www.dlrcoco.ie/council-democracy.
