Kilkenny Council extends office hours to help voters get on electoral register
With the General Election fast approaching, so is the deadline to register to vote. Kilkenny County Council is extending its office open hours to help people who want to cast theirs.
The council will keep its doors open until 6.30pm today and tomorrow evening to allow people to come in and get themselves on the supplementary electoral list.
The closing date for the supplement to the Register of Electors is tomorrow, Wednesday, January 22.
The council is asking people to check to see if they are on the register of electors, which can be checked at www.checktheregister.ie or by phoning Kilkenny County Council on 056 779 4070.
People whose details are not included on the register still have time to get their vote by applying for inclusion on the supplement to the register.
Completed forms must be stamped by a Garda and signed in their presence, if this is not possible forms can also be witnessed by a Registration Official at council offices in Kilkenny, Callan, Castlecomer or Ferrybank.
Voting takes place on Saturday, February 8.
