All the information you need on how to vote, where to go, what to bring, and more.
After months of campaigning, Ireland is set to vote on whether to retain or repeal the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution on Friday, May 25.
The amendment, which was inserted into the Constitution in 1983, effectively bans abortion in Ireland in all but limited circumstances.
Ahead of the vote, the Referendum Commission has issued the following video for those unsure about what's being decided on:
Here's everything you need to know about casting your vote on Friday.
Are you able to vote?
To vote, you must be an Irish citizen over 18 years of age and on the register of electors.
Are you registered?
You can check whether you’re able to vote at CheckTheRegister.ie, which includes a list of those added to the supplementary register in recent weeks.
The final day for registration was May 8, so if you're not already on the register you won't be able to have your say.
Where can you vote?
Your polling station is listed on your polling card, which you should have received in the post before May 25.
If you're on the register but haven't received your card by May 25, you can useCheckTheRegister.ieto find out where to go.
What time can you vote?
Polling stations are open between 7am and 10pm.
What do you need to bring?
You'll need to bring a valid form of photo ID, including a passport, driving licence, or public services card.
How do you vote?
All you have to do is put an X in the box with your choice.
Don't put anything else in the box or write anywhere else on the form, or your vote will be spoiled (which is allowed, but means your vote won't be included when final tallies are counted).
Anything else you need to know?
Make sure you don't wear any campaign badges or clothes when you go to vote; this could be interpreted as campaigning inside a polling station end up potentially spoiling your votes and everyone else's.
It should also go without saying, but you should avoid taking pictures/selfies inside the polling station and the booth.
