Wexford County Council will be holding drop in sessions on the electoral register in various locations around the county.
These sessions will give people a chance to check the electoral register and see if they are eligible to vote at the upcoming Referendums on May 22.
The first session takes place in New Ross Library on April 15 between 2pm and 4pm followed by Gorey Library on Thursday, April 16 between 10.30am and 12.30pm. There will be a session at Enniscorthy Library on Thursday, April 16 between 2pm and 4pm and at Wexford Library on Friday, April 17, between 2pm and 4pm.
If you are not on the Electoral Register, you can apply to be included on the supplementary register. Staff of the council will be on hand to advise you on the relevant forms and to provide assistance in their completion.
County Secretary at Wexford County Council Pat Collins is encouraging all eligible persons to ensure they are on the Electoral Register. 'A referendum is an occasion when a decision is made not by the Oireachtas or by the Courts but by the people who vote so it is essential to check the Register now to ensure your voice will be heard'.
The closing date for receipt of applications for the supplementary register is May 5
