Update your Citizenship on the Register of Electors

If you have recently become an Irish Citizen but have not informed the Register of Electors Section in the Council, you can update your status to a Presidential elector. This will enable you to vote in all Elections and Referenda. 

You can update your status to a Presidential elector by completing a RFA5 form which can be downloaded from www.checktheregister.ie or by emailing us at register@louthcoco.ie and a form will be posted to you.  

Alternatively, you can phone us at 042-9335457 to request a form. You will need to complete this form and send it us along with a copy of your Irish passport, or a copy of the Certificate of Naturalisation under the Nationality and Citizenship Act 1956 to:
