arrow I am on the Register but I didn’t get a ballot paper in the last election.

Have you changed your address since you registered to be included on the Register?

If so please contact NUI to update your details. If you are on the Register and didn't get your voting papers, the most likely reason is that we have an incorrect address on record for you.

Unless we are informed of a change of address, voting papers will go to the address on record.


arrow Once the Register has been published, is it possible to amend an address?

Yes, a graduate who is already registered may, at any time, ensure that his/her details are up-to-date.

The form below may be used and should be completed in full and hand signed.

The form can then be scanned and attached to an email and sent to records@nui.ie or posted to Records Office, National University of Ireland, 49 Merrion Square, Dublin 2, D02 V583.

arrow Purchasing a copy of the Seanad Éireann Register

By Order (S.I. No. 290 of 2000) of the then Minister of the Environment, Mr. Noel Dempsey, the following Regulation became effective from 21st September 2000:

The fee to be paid under paragraph (d) of Rule 15 of the First Schedule to the Act by an applicant for a copy of the revised[Seanad Éireann] register or any part thereof shall be fifty nine pence plus the sum of twelve pence for each one hundred by which the number of persons in the revised register or part thereof exceeds one hundred. (Note: 59 pence = 75 cent; 12 pence = 15 cent)

The current Register, operative from 1st June 2018, contains the names of 108,251 electors. Using the prescribed calculation*, the cost of the 2018 Register amounts to €163.05, either in hard or electronic copy.

*Number of 100’s, or part thereof, by which 108,251 exceeds 100 = 1082.
1082 x .15 = €162.30
+ €0.75
= €163.05
Cost of Register = €163.00 (Rounding)

Anyone purchasing a copy of the register must undertake to comply with the relevant provisions of the Irish Data Protection Act 2018 (and EU General Data Protection Regulations).

A form is available for this purpose from the NUI office.

The Seanad Register may be used only for electoral purposes.
