A freephone number (1800 805 816) will be made available for members of the public, particularly visually impaired voters, to familiarise themselves with the candidates running in Westmeath in the 2019 Local Elections.
This freephone number works in conjunction with a Local Elections ballot paper template to be provided at all polling stations on polling day. This arrangement is similar to what was in place for the Presidential Election in October 2018.
The freephone number is due to be activated and become operational on Thursday 16 May and shall be available up to close of polls on Friday 24 May 2019.
A list of candidates for each Local Electoral Area can also be found at Elections 2019.
