With only 56.92% of eligible people in the Newry and Armagh electoral constituency having re-registered to vote to date,  MLA Justin McNulty has issued a timely reminder urging people to re-register as soon as possible.

Newry and Armagh currently ranks fourth from the bottom of the North’s constituencies for re-registrations. 

Every ten years, the electoral register is expunged as part of the national canvass and everyone in NI is required to re-register to vote, even if you have been registered previously.

Justin McNulty, MLA

The Newry and Armagh Assembly Member said “Just over half of those eligible in Newry and Armagh have so far re-registered to vote. We need to see a large increase in these numbers, particularly ahead of next year’s Assembly election. The process to re-register is quick and easy, it only takes five minutes and this will guarantee your place on the Electoral Register for the next ten years.

“Your vote is your voice, so if you want to have a say in upcoming elections, then you need to be registered. The people of Newry and Armagh will have a choice at the polls - they can vote to continue the DUP/Sinn Féin dominance which has delivered so little for our people, including a period with no government at all, or they can vote for real and meaningful change to make the North a better place to live for all of our people.”
