How to cast your vote?


  1. A Election polling sheet will be sent to your residence several days before an election.
  2. Go to the assigned polling station with picture id & hand over the polling sheet with your id.
  3. A ballot sheet will be given to you, take this ballot sheet to the assigned enclosed area to cast your vote.

It is important to note that Ireland uses a Proportional Representation voting system, where you vote by placing a number beside the candidate, starting from 1 & continuing up. Also if you mark the ballot sheet in another way other, your vote is “spoilt” & will not be counted.
