Kerry candidates for the general election are being reminded not to place posters on road traffic signs, poles or overhead bridges.
The warning comes from Kerry County Council, which is also advising people over 18 to make sure they’re registered to vote.
Now that the Dáil has been dissolved and a date’s been set for the election, posters have already begun appearing around the county.
But Kerry County Council today released a statement asking candidates and political parties not to erect posters where they’ll obstruct sight lines for motorists or present a traffic hazard.
The local authority is also reminding those eligible to vote, who’re not registered, that they still have time to apply for entry in the supplement to the Register of Electors, to be published before polling day.
The closing date for inclusion in the supplement is Tuesday, February 9th at 5pm, while the closing date for the postal/special voters list, is Friday February 5th at 5pm.
To be eligible for inclusion in the supplement, a person must be 18 years of age or over, on or before polling day and must be resident in the State.
For inclusion in the supplement to the register, a person must complete the relevant application form, which can be downloaded from www.checktheregister.ie or can be obtained from Kerry County Council.
