Using Your Vote - Seanad Election 2016


Using Your Vote - Seanad Election March - April 2016, Dublin University Panel

If you are a Trinity College Dublin Graduate and are already on the Seanad Electoral Register you will start to receive official, approved campaign material on behalf of all the nominated candidates including myself. As of Monday 21st March the ballot papers will be issued and posted directly to you at the address on the Seanad Register. Once you receive your ballot paper it will need to be filled out and returned before Tuesday 26th April, 11am in order for your vote to be counted. The poll closes in the Dublin University constituency at 11am on Tuesday 26th April. #UseYourVote 

If you don't start receiving official post and are concerned that you won't receive your ballot paper please don't hesitate to contact me or the Academic Registry Service Desk, Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin, Dublin 2, Ireland. www.tcd.ie/academicregistry

Perhaps you have moved since graduating and need to update your contact details. https://www.tcd.ie/academicregistry/seanad/seanad-form.php This only applies to graduates who are currently registered on the existing Seanad Elector Register issued last June 2015. All new graduates since then can register but won't be eligible to vote in the Seanad Election 2016. If you are not already registered to vote follow this link - https://www.tcd.ie/academicregistry/seanad/assets/SeanadElectoralRegisterClaimForm.pdf to update your details.

And remember, graduates of DIT whose degrees were awarded through Dublin University are also entitled to vote in the Seanad elections. If you are an NUI graduate, you have a vote for the Seanad on a different panel. This year there are a number of superb NUI Panel candidates who ahve a good equality and social justice record. 

To all graduates, please ensure that you are registered to vote by contacting the alumni office and checking the register!

Best wishes,
