I haven’t received my polling cards yet


Q: I haven’t received my polling cards yet. What can I do if they don’t arrive on time?

A: Fear not! If you’re on the register you’ll be able to vote with a valid photo id. Here’s how to check to make sure you are:

  1. Visit checktheregister.ie
  2. Select your province and constituency (where you voted last time, unless you’ve changed it)
  3. Enter your townland or street address
  4. Find your name and polling details.

If your name is listed here, make note of the polling location and booth that you need to visit on polling day.

Your name will be on the list that the polling clerk has at their desk, so even if you don’t have your polling card you can present a valid photo id like a passport or a driving licence and will be allowed to vote.
