Hun­dreds of vot­ers still haven’t reg­is­tered

Bray People - - News -

HUN­DREDS OF po­ten­tial vot­ers in Bray are not on the reg­is­ter of elec­tors.

Of the 569 apart­ments in Bray, only 157 of them are oc­cu­pied by some­one who is reg­is­tered to vote, while at the Print­works apart­ments on Dar­gle road, no-one is reg­is­tered.

And at La Vallee on the Dar­gle Road only 14 peo­ple are reg­is­tered to vote in more than 100 apart­ments. A num­ber of other de­vel­op­ments in­clud­ing Di­a­mond Val­ley and The Head­lands pro­duce sim­i­lar statis­tics.

‘I am alarmed about the sit­u­a­tion,’ said Cllr. John Brady. ‘Hun­dreds of peo­ple in Bray will be de­nied their demo­cratic right to a vote.’

A new reg­is­ter came in to force on Mon­day and the lo­cal elec­tions will take place in June. It is not too late, how­ever, for res­i­dents to add their de­tails to the sup­ple­men­tal reg­is­ter.
