In conjunction with This Time I’m Voting, Monaghan County Council, Monaghan Public Participation Network and the Europe Direct Information Centre Clones are collaborating to host a Your Vote Your Voice event this Thursday 18th April in St. Josephs Pastoral Centre, Monaghan Town. Members of the public and community and voluntary organisations can drop in anytime between 10.30am – 1.00pm.
The purpose of the event is to provide the public with an Easy Guide to Voting in advance of the upcoming European elections which take place on 24th May 2019. We want to provide people with information about:
- What Is An Election?
- Who Can Vote IN Ireland
- Why Should you use your vote?
- Voting in Ireland by Secret Ballot
- How to Check if your name is on the Register of Electors
- How to add your name to the Register of Electors
- Samples of Polling Cards
- Information about Polling Stations
- What identification qualifies if you do not have a polling card
- How to vote – we will have sample ballot papers for the elections and referendum
This information session is aimed at young people who will vote for the first time and people who are voting for the first time in Monaghan/Ireland. A printed Easy Guide To Voting will be available to take home. Staff from Monaghan County Council will be available to speak to the public and answer any queries.
