Referendum Polling Day

Posted March 29th, 2018

Yesterday I signed the order for polling day on the referendum on repealing the 8th amendment to the constitution and allowing the Oireachtas to legislate in this area – polling will take place on Friday the 25th of May.

Polling will take place between the hours of 7 am and 10 pm. The total electorate currently stands at some 3.2 million. Whatever your views are on the proposals in the referendum, I would encourage voters to go to their polling station during this 15 hour period on 25 May and have your say in the outcome of the referendum.

To vote in the referendum you must be an Irish citizen who meets the qualifying conditions, including a requirement to be 18 years or over on polling day and ordinarily resident at the address at which you want to register.  If you are on the register and have moved address recently, you may apply to get on the supplement at your new address.

To check if you registered to vote, go here.
