AN ADDITIONAL 118,389 people have been added to the supplementary register ahead of tomorrow’s referendum on the Eighth Amendment.

This is a huge increase on the number added ahead of the same-sex marriage referendum in 2015 when almost 66,000 people were added to the register.

Overall, more than 3.2 million people are now registered to vote in tomorrow’s referendum.

The Department of Housing and Local Government has given a breakdown of the numbers added in the 31 city and county councils.

The highest number was in Dublin City Council with 19,805, followed by Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown (9,729) and Cork County Council with 9,049.

On the other end of the scale the lowest numbers were in Leitrim (670), Roscommon (708) and Longford (841).
