PRESS RELEASE BY THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION European Parliament and Local Council Elections – 8th June, 2024

Delivery of Voting Documents by Police Officers


The Electoral Commission notifies those persons whose name appears in the Electoral Register published on 20th April, 2024, subject to additions, deletions and corrections ordered by the Revising Officer, that voting documents will be delivered by the Police daily from Saturday 27th April until Friday 10th or Saturday 11th May, 2024, according to electoral districts, between 8.00 a.m. and 1.00 p.m. and 3.00 p.m. and 9.00 p.m.


The Electoral Commission notifies that voting documents shall be delivered only at the address where the voter is registered.  This means it is necessary that at the place of residence there shall be a responsible person over 16 years of age who is a relative, and/or resides or works thereat to receive the voting document/s. 


Persons receiving the voting document/s will be asked to confirm receipt of the documents by signing on a mobile device provided by the Police Officer, instead of on a register as used to be done previously.


The Electoral law permits political party representatives to accompany the police officer during the delivery.  These representatives are supplied with an authorization tag issued by the Electoral Commission, to be shown on demand.


Voting documents should be kept in a safe place, as nobody will be allowed to vote without them on polling day.
