In order to be able to vote at an election or referendum, a person's name must be entered on the register of electors for the locality in which the elector ordinarily resides.

How do I register to vote?

If you are not included in the register of electors you may apply for entry in a Supplement to the register:

Application for entry in the supplement must be received by us at least 15 working days before polling day in order to be considered for that election or referendum.

However, an application can be made at any time the elector is eligible for entry on the supplement. Persons entered in the supplement are entitled to vote at elections/referenda held during the currency of the register.

To be eligible for inclusion in the supplement, a person must:

  • have attained 18 years;
  • be ordinarily resident at the address at which

He/she wishes to be registered

  • not be already registered as an elector at any other address.
