I lifted most of this post from Daithi at Lex Ferenda. I do so with apologies- this is an important, urgent topic.
If you are unlikely to be able to vote in person on Thursday 24th May (and you are already registered to vote), it is not too late to apply for a postal vote. If you are accepted as a postal voter (due to being resident in a different place to where youâ€™re registered – i.e. a student from Cork living in Dublin during term-time for college), you must vote by post – you canâ€™t then turn up at your polling booth in Cork.
Your application for a postal vote goes to the local authority area in which youâ€™re already registered – Donegal County Council in this area.
This must be done by Tuesday. (An application by an elector to have his name entered in the supplement to the postal voters list received by the registration authority on or after the third day after the dissolution of the DÃ¡il at a general election â€¦ shall not have effect in relation to that election or referendum).
If you, or anyone you know, will require a postal vote, my advice is to ring Sheila in Dr McDaid’s office on 074 916 8642. Registrations have to be in by 4pm tomorrow (Tuesday)
