TODAY IS THE final day that it is possible to be added to the supplementary voting register in time to vote in the Fiscal Compact referendum on 31 May.

All Irish citizens over the age of 18 can register to vote and have until 5pm today to get on the supplementary register if they are not already on it.

Those already on the register can check their details in their local authority office, post offices, garda stations and public libraries.  You can also log on to the website and check your details there.

To be eligible for inclusion in the supplement to the register a person must be an Irish citizen, over 18 by polling day and must be ordinarily resident in the State although those who have returned to the State can also register.

An application for inclusion on the supplementary register can be obtained from the website, but must be signed by the applicant in the presence of a member of the Gardaí from the applicant’s local Garda station. Photographic identification may also be required.
