Deadline looms for electoral register

Members of the public are being warned not to lose their vote in the upcoming referendums because they left it too late to put their name down on the electoral register. Voters have a little over a week to make sure they are on the register of electorate.
Cavan County Council updates the draft register every year in October and the 2018/19 draft register is now published. Amendments to the draft must be made by November 25.
Conor Harrington, the Communications Officer with Cavan County Council, said that the public can now check to make sure they are eligable to vote in the forthcoming referendums: “Copies of the register have been sent to all Garda Stations, Post Offices and Libraries. The closing date for receipt of postal vote applications and any amendment to draft, additions or deletions is November 25, 2017.”
Mr Harrington said that it is important to address the local authority on any issues: “It should be noted that the onus is on each individual to make sure that they are on the register of electors and this can be done by checking on All deletions and additions from now until November 25 will go through the Claims Courts and all amendments will feed through to the live register which will be published in February.”
