In Ireland, the legal voting age is 18. You must register to vote for the first time. It is not an automatic process.

16 and 17 year olds can pre-register to vote.

Registering or pre-registering to vote takes 2 minutes and 3 pieces of information (your date of birth, PPSN and Eircode).

In the 2019 local elections, Social Democrats leader Holly Cairns won the last seat in her local electoral area by a single vote.

Every vote counts.
