    If you can eliminate say, 5% of the electorate who are most likely swing voters, you can skew the results. Sounds like a mad, internet style conspiracy theory until you see stuff like the incorrect date listed. Makes you wonder. Why exactly are people just removed without explanation?

    Lots of things sound like mad, internet style conspiracies until they are actually proven to be true. I lost out on my vote because of being removed for no reason, thing is, I had checked in good time and was on it, grand, then a thread went up about it on here and just out of curiosity I checked again. Gone. No reason. Too late at that stage of course. I was f*cking livid.

    My advice, assume that you are not on it and check, check and check again. I'd rather be paranoid with a vote than content without one. Of course I'm still at a loss as to who to vote for but that of course is another issue.
    Well you should check out the logic behind the shifting of electoral boundaries? Same logic as removing people from the electoral register.

    Thanks again.
    I just thought there may have been a specific or general reason for my removal that you have been aware of, I understand now it could be for any reason, I honestly would not have known until the next time I went to vote.

    Every so often a short window opens - this is when you can check and make sure you still have your right to vote recognised.

    Check the Register

    In Focus - Department of the Environment, Community & Local Government

    The official publicity misleadingly refers to 25 November. The last date for receipt of corrections or new applications is the day before that - 24 November. Watch out for that.

    The new register will decide who gets to vote for instance on the civil marriage equality referendum due next year.
    Just checked - still on the register but will check again closer to the 24th. Many years ago, my parents along with a number of others, all of whom had lived at the same address for many years, found themselves mysteriously removed from the register.

    Social media can work to make those apparently isolated and never explained incidents a bit more rare I hope. Tell your friends.

    You don't have to be in Co. Limerick to feel that way

    Seriously though, is it that you are city voters and in the wrong Register?
