I propose with your permission, a Cheann Comhairle, to take Questions Nos. 101 and 102 together.
A person who is a citizen of Ireland aged at least 21 years on the date on which the current register of electors comes into force is entitled to vote at a Dáil or local election in the constituency or local authority area in which he or she is registered as a Dáil or local elector by virtue of ordinary residence or of occupation—
(1) in the case of Dáil elections, on a qualifying date, of business premises with a rateable valuation of not less than £10 or,
(2) in the case of local elections, of land or premises for a qualifying period.
In addition, the Representation of the People Act, 1918, confers a right to vote at local elections on British subjects aged at least 21 years on the date on which the current register comes into force and who are registered in that register as local electors by virtue of the occupation of land or premises for a qualifying period. The wives of such persons who reside with them and are British subjects at least 30 years of age on the date on which the register comes into force are also entitled to be registered and to vote at local elections.
No person may vote at a Dáil or local election if he is subject to any legal incapacity or prohibition from voting. In particular no person may vote more than once at a Dáil election or at the election of members of any one local authority.
