The independent Referendum Commission has urged people to register to vote ahead of today’s deadline to have a say in the May 25 referendum.
The de facto referendum referee issued the last-minute call, warning that anyone who is not on the register by close of office hours this afternoon that they will not be able to vote.
Anyone who is not registered to vote in their local authority will not receive a polling card.
A Referendum Commission spokesman said anyone who is unsure if they are registered should look up checktheregister.ie.
He said those who are not registered should download a county council RFA2 form today, bring it to their local Garda station with a passport or photo ID, and “hand deliver it” to their local authority office, as it will be too late at that stage to post the documents.
Anyone who has changed their address on the register will need to download an RFA3 form, while recent Irish citizens will need an RFA5 form.
The rival Together For Yes and Love Both campaigns have urged supporters to register, saying every vote will count on Friday, May 25.
