Register of Electors

New Irish Citizens

I've become an Irish Citizen. How do I change my status on the Register?

If you have changed your nationality it may affect which elections you can vote in. To update your nationality, please download and print the Register to Vote or Update details form (ERF1).  Printed forms are also available from your local authority.

You will also need to provide supporting documentation such as a photocopy of your passport or certificate of naturalisation. You should send your completed application form to your local authority (your city or county council).

Can I update my nationality details online?

No, you need to complete this form and post it to your local authority. It will need to be accompanied by supporting documentation, e.g. a photocopy of the photo page of your passport or your certificate of naturalisation.
