On Friday, May 25th, the people of Ireland will vote in a Referendum on removing the Eight Amendment to the Constitution.
While there are many opinions on both sides, FDYS Youth Info is encouraging young adults, particularly first time voters, to ensure their voice is heard and to register to vote.
Young people who turn 18 on or before midnight May 25th are entitled to vote but they must apply to the Supplement to the Register of Electors.
‘You will need to complete a RFA2 form, get it stamped at your local Garda Station and return it to your local county Council Office.
‘Young people should also have some form of identification such as a passport, driving licence or age card and proof of address.
RFA2 forms are available can be picked up from your local post office, library or Garda station.
Members of the public can also visit www.checktheregister.ie to find out if they are register to vote.
Those who need support in completing the forms can contact FDYS’ Youth Information Centre at
