Minister of State for Nature, Heritage and Electoral Reform, Malcolm Noonan, and Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien, launched a national awareness campaign to call on everyone to go to and make sure they are correctly registered to vote. The campaign aims to support the ongoing work of local authorities who are engaging with their communities to update the electoral register. 

Minister Noonan specifically called on long-time voters to log on to, even if they haven’t moved or their circumstances haven’t changed:

“It’s really important that everyone confirms their details on the website. It’s not about whether you have voted before, it’s about letting your Local Authority know that your entry is current and correct, so that they can focus on identifying and, where necessary, removing entries that are out of date or incorrect. This helps to protect the integrity of the electoral register for all of us..”  

Chief Executive Tipperary County Council Joe Mac Grath “The European and Local elections are scheduled to take place in June 2024 with over 125,000 individuals currently registered to vote in Tipperary. Maintaining an accurate electoral register is critical for the integrity and value of the democratic process. Voters can play their part by verifying and updating their information, for example, by adding their Personal Public Service Number (PPSN), Date of Birth and Eircode which will help eliminate any outdated or incorrect entries on the Register”

Minister Noonan also acknowledged that despite Local Authorities’ best efforts, some entries on the register may be out of date, noting that people move or indeed emigrate without notifying local authorities. There are also cases, he said, where people receive a polling card for a deceased loved one coming up to an electoral event, which can be particularly distressing. Minister Noonan said:

“Local authorities take removing someone from the register very seriously so it’s really important that they are notified and that the information is confirmed with them. Families are often best placed to do this. There is a form available on that allows any person to notify their local authorities if a change is needed on the electoral register.”

Cathaoirleach Councillor Ger Darcy “The electorate plays a pivotal role in shaping the future of our nation. Voting is not just a privilege, but a responsibility that each citizen should embrace. Therefore, it is important that each voter's information is up to date. By ensuring that your details are correct, you can actively participate in the democratic process and exercise your right to vote during the upcoming European and Local elections”
