Fine Gael Limerick TD, Dan Neville, has today urged anyone who is eligible to vote, but who has not yet registered, to ensure they are added to the supplementary register.
“There is still time to get your name on the supplementary register if you are not already registered to vote. It’s a good idea for everyone to make sure they are on the register by going to checktheregister.ie.
“Anyone who may have recently moved to Wexford, or moved house, should make sure they are registered to vote locally.
“Application forms for the supplementary register can be downloaded from www.checktheregister.ie or obtained from the County Council. My office on Main St., Rathkeale will also provide application forms, and we can provide whatever assistance is required.
“The right to vote is central to our democracy and it is important that those who are eligible to vote are in a position to do so. The Local and European Elections will be held on Friday, May 23rd, and if you want to make your voice heard, it’s important you are registered now.
“The closing date for inclusion on the supplementary register is Tuesday May 6th, or April 26th for Postal Votes. I am advising people to get their form organised as soon as possible, and remember that it must be witnessed by a member of An Garda Síochána.”
