Did you know? All RCSI degree-holders who are Irish citizens are entitled, by law, to vote in the elections to Seanad Éireann, the upper house of the Irish legislature. This entitlement derives from RCSI's legal status as part of the National University of Ireland (NUI) electoral constituency.

You can claim your vote by downloading and completing the Registration Claim Form here, and returning it to NUI no later than the 26th February 2018.

You will be then be added to the voter register which will be published on the 1st June, and will receive your vote at the time of the next Seanad Éireann Election.
