Polling cards and voter identification

If you are registered to vote in the presidential election and referendum on 26 October 2018, you should have received a polling card at your home address .

Your polling card states your elector number and the name of the polling station where you are to vote. It will also have a formal statement explaining what the election and referendum are about.

If you haven’t received a polling card by 26 October, you can still vote at your local polling station as long as you are registered to vote. You can check this on checktheregister.ie.

You should bring a valid form of personal identification, such as your passport, driving licence, student card with photo etc., when you go to vote. Your polling card is not accepted as a valid form of ID. There is a full list on referendum.ie.

You can read more about voting in a referendum and about presidential  elections.

The Referendum Commission has published information about the referendum.
