Are you registered to vote? Please contact Seamus Healy’s office on 052 6121883 for information and forms.
The right to vote is as follows:
> Irish citizens may vote at every election and referendum;
> British citizens may vote at Dáil elections, European elections and local elections;
> Other European Union (EU) citizens may vote at European and local elections*
> Non-EU citizens may vote at local elections only.
The forthcoming General Election which is due to take place in February/March will be the most difficult election we have ever contested with the new all County Constituency and the number of Dáil Seats reduced from 6 to 5.
I would appreciate your help in this election so I can continue to stand up for ordinary people, make sure their voice is heard and ensure that they get a fair crack of the whip.
You can help by giving me your No. 1 Vote and asking your family, relations and friends to give me their No. 1 Vote.
You can check the register at any time to make sure you do have a vote at http://www.checktheregister.ie or alternatively you can contact the office on 052 6121883.
If you or someone you know has recently turned 18 and wishes to register to vote please contact the office and we will be happy to help you with registering.
Many thanks again for your support in the past and looking forward to your continued help during this General Election Campaign.
The 6th of October is ‘National Day of Voter Registration’ and the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) are running a campaign across 24 student campuses in Ireland tomorrow to enable students to register to vote.
This Government backtracked on a pre-election pledge to students and increased college registration fees, up 50%. They have left students sleeping on couches because of the accommodation crisis, have slashed student grants and have cut allowances to those on apprenticeships.
At a time when people have been left in very difficult situations due to cuts and increased fees, increased rents etc., students have been left with poor counselling services again as a result of further cuts.
Register to vote, and use it to ensure people you can trust to fight for you can. #RockTheRegister
