Cllr. Donnelly urges last minute voters to get on the register

13th May 2009

Local Green Party candidate Cllr. Dominick Donnelly has urged voters to get on the supplementary register before it closes this Friday, 15th May. The supplementary register will allow those eligible to vote in the upcoming local, European and bye-elections if they are not currently included on the electoral register.

Cllr. Donnelly said: “Every vote counts, so it’s crucial that those eligible get on the register and exercise their democratic right to vote.  As a secondary school teacher, I know that there are many students who have recently turned 18, but are not yet registered to vote.  If they want to use their vote for the first time, they must get registered in the next few days. To get on the supplementary register, you must get a registration form stamped by the Gardai and submit it to Cork County Council by 5pm this Friday.

“If you come from another EU country, as long as you’re not voting back home you can vote in the European elections. If you’re from outside the EU you can vote in the local elections. I’d urge everyone to look at the Citizen’s Information Service website, http://www.citizensinformation.ie to get the full details on how to make sure that their voice is heard. You can get application forms from there or on http://www.registertovote.ie.  If you’re not sure if you are registered to vote you can access the register on http://www.checktheregister.ie   before you submit an application,” continued Cllr. Donnelly.

Cllr Donnelly concluded: “The Green Party wants every voter to get the opportunity to choose who will represent them locally and in Europe.”
