    Im on the register in county A for presidential/referenda, since I lived abroad for many years. Have now moved home to county B and wish to fully register myself for all elections. What form do I need to fill out?

    Regards.

    this I believe https://www.checktheregister.ie/appforms/RFA2_English_form.pdf

    Cutoff however was Tuesday 9 October 2018

    How far away is county A?

    Counties A and B border each other and share the town I live in. Since I missed the cutoff should I wait before sending in this form with regards to voting in the referendum and presidential election?

    You're on the register in County A for all purposes. There is no class of people who are entitled to vote only in presidential elections and referendums. The notation beside your name indicates that, yes, you are entitled to vote in presidential elections and referendums as well as everything else (which means you are an Irish citizen; not-citizens have more restricted voting rights.

    You can safely send in the form. The new register, reflecting all the changes, will take effect next April, and from then on you'll be registered in County B. Until then, the existing register continues in force; you can vote in County A.
