General election - 26 February 2016 - Supplementary Register and Postal/Special Voters list

Kerry County Council wishes to advise that people who are eligible to vote in the general election but are not registered as electors still have time to apply for entry in the supplement to the register of electors to be published before polling day.

The closing date for inclusion in the supplement to the Register of Electors is Tuesday, 9 February at 5pm and the closing date for the postal/special voters list is Friday, 5 February at 5pm.

To be eligible for inclusion in the supplement, a person must be 18 years of age or over on or before polling day and must be ordinarily resident in the State. For inclusion in the supplement to the register, a person must complete the relevant application form, which can be downloaded from www.checktheregister.ie or can be obtained from Kerry County Council.

An application for inclusion in the supplement to the register must be signed by the applicant in the presence of a member of An Garda Síochána from the applicant’s local Garda station who must first be satisfied as to the person’s identity before signing, dating and stamping the form.

If a person is eligible to vote by post, or is unable to vote in person due to a physical illness or physical disability and is resident in a hospital, nursing home or similar institution, and they are not on the Postal Voters List or Special Voters List, as appropriate, they can apply for inclusion in the relevant list.
