Special Voters’ List

The Special Voters List is for people who have a physical disability or illness who are residing in hospitals, nursing homes or similar institutions and who wish to vote at those locations.

To qualify, an elector’s physical disability must be likely to continue for the duration of the register and prevent him/her from going to the polling station to vote. To apply, fill out the
application form for entry onto the Special Voters List Form SV1.

Applications for inclusion on the Special Voters List must be made every year before 25th November and in the case of the first application, must be accompanied by a medical certificate.

Electors on the Special Voters list vote by marking a ballot paper delivered to them by a special presiding officer accompanied by a Garda.

Application forms are available on checktheregister.ie and from our Customer Services Departments in Baileys New Street, Waterford and Civic Offices, Davitt’s Quay, Dungarvan which are open from 9.30am-4pm (Monday-Friday).

To be included on the February 2021 Special Voters List complete and return the form by 25th November 2020 to the Customer Services Department or by post to:
Register of Electors, Waterford City and County Council, City Hall, The Mall, Waterford.
