The Register of Electors

The Register of Electors is a list of all persons who are entitled to vote at elections and referenda.

It comes into force on the 15th of February each year. Each September, field workers visit residences inside the Waterford City and County administrative boundary to update the register and to deliver the appropriate forms to householders, if needed.

A 'Draft Register' is then published on 1st November each year and this may be inspected free of charge at City Hall, Waterford, the Civic Offices, Dungarvan, Post Offices, Garda Stations and our libraries.

  • Information on being added to the Special Voters' List
    The "Special Voters List" is for people who have a physical disability or illness who are residing in hospitals, nursing homes or similar institutions and who wish to vote at these locations.

    To qualify, an elector’s physical disability must be likely to continue for the duration of the register and prevent him/her from going to the polling station to vote. To apply, fill out the application form for entry onto the Special Voters' List Form SV1.
