Draft Register of Electors
The Council is responsible for the compilation of the Register of Electors (voting register) for County Mayo. The Register comes into force on 15th February each year, and persons aged 18 years or over on that date, who are otherwise qualified can register to vote. The address at which a person is registered will be that at which he/she resides on the 1st September, preceding publication. A draft register is published by the 1st November each year, and is made available at all Council offices, and also at libraries and post offices in the County, and the public are invited to check that they are properly registered. Persons can apply to make changes (claims) before the final register is printed. The last day for receipt of such claims is 25th November.
Revision Claim Courts are held during December throughout the County to adjudicate on claims/submissions received, and are presided over by the County Registrar, who rules on the submissions made. Notices of such Courts are advertised in the local newspapers, and persons may attend these Courts if they so wish.
There are six different categories of Postal Voters Lists, as follows:-
Persons who have a physical illness or physical disability, and who are ordinarily resident in a hospital, home or similar institution, can apply for inclusion on the special voters list, whereby the ballot paper is delivered to them prior to polling day by a Special Presiding Officer.
