So, instead of just talking online about registering or updating your address before the deadline of February 26th (because if you miss it you won’t be eligible to vote until June 2020!!!), I am bringing the forms to you!!
I am holding Saturday afternoon stalls until the 16th of February and will have registration forms available for you to fill out, give to me and I will drop them in the NUI office on Merrion Square for you! You’ll just need your student number or graduation details for the form – couldn’t be easier!!
Come and see me outside Brown Thomas, Cork on Saturday the 9th of February from 1pm – 3pm; and
in Galway city centre on Saturday the 16th of February from 1pm – 3pm.
Details can be found each week on my facebook page.
I’ve already held stalls in Grafton St., Dublin and at Supervalu at the Glenroyal complex in Maynooth and had some great chats with people who were already registered; some who filled in their forms at the stall or with some who weren’t eligible but took forms for friends and family who are!
There is no Supplementary Register when a Seanad election is called – if you miss this deadline then you won’t be eligible to vote until June 2020!
The registration form in English is available here: http://www.nui.ie/elections/docs/GradUpdateENG.pdf
The registration form in Irish is available here: http://www.nui.ie/elections/docs/gradUpdateIR.pdf
The list of eligible institutions is available here (and is more extensive than you might think – make sure to check it out!): http://www.nui.ie/elections/docs/institutions.pdf
And the NUI’s own news page about the 2019 register is available here: http://www.nui.ie/news/2019/SERegister_Registration2019.asp
Thanks so much – just make sure to get your form to the NUI office before the 26th of February to ensure that the NUI panel of Senators is representative of your values and priorites!
