Seanad Éireann Election 2016 - Making sure you are registered to vote!
Despite the speculations and predictions we don't have an official date for the General or Seanad Election 2016. However, we do know that the Seanad electoral register deadline is Friday 26th February 2016. So if you are a Trinity College Dublin graduate and you plan to vote then make sure they have your correct and up-to-date details using the form linked below.
Under the Constitution of Ireland the general election for the Seanad must occur not later than 90 days after the dissolution of Dáil Éireann. The election occurs under the system of proportional representation by means of the single transferable vote (however in the panel constituencies each vote counts as 1000 meaning fractions of votes can be transferred). Membership is open to all Irish citizens over 21, but a senator cannot also be a member of Dáil Éireann.
