Register of Electors

The Register of Electors is a list of Irish residents registered to vote at Elections and Referenda held during the year it is in force.   

We prepare a new Register of Electors for Mayo each year. This is published on 1st February, coming into force on the following 15th February.   

The current Register of Electors runs from 15th February 2020 to 14th February 2021. 

Everyone aged 18 years or over on the day the Register comes into force is entitled to be included and your citizenship status determines at which elections you can vote. For this reason, we ask for your citizenship status when you register to vote. 

The right to vote is as follows: 

  • Irish citizens may vote at every election and referendum 
  • British citizens may vote at Dáil and Local Elections only following Brexit
  • Other EU citzens may vote at European and Local Elections only 
  • Non - EU Citizens may vote at Local Elections only
