Check the Register – Louth County Council

2nd November, 2021: The Draft Register of Electors 2022-2023 was published on the 1st November 2021.  The Draft Register for Louth provides for 94,864 voters and allows them to vote in any election or referendum held between 1st February 2022 and 31st January 2023.  A high quality Register of Electors is essential for the successful operation of the electoral system. It is vital that Louth County Council, the Registration Authority, tries to achieve the highest possible degree of accuracy and comprehensiveness in compiling the Register.  On foot of various mailouts to electors a considerable amount of amendments, including deletions were carried out since the publication of the Live Register in February 2021.
