About

Love NI Vote NI is about asking people to vote in the  2017 Northern Ireland Assembly Election on March 2nd.

703,744 people voted in the 2016 NI Assembly Election – 577,851 did not.

Imagine what a difference it could have made if those 577,851 people had voted, and voted differently.

Love NI Vote NI is about asking the people who live here, in Northern Ireland / the North of Ireland, to change the political landscape – to believe that a change is possible and to vote for it.

So many people think their votes don’t matter. They do.

So many people think there’s no hope, no new blood. There is.

Stormont doesn’t have to be the same old same old bickering mess again and again and again. There are other parties. There are other options.

They are there, on the ballot paper. Give them a chance.

Please make sure you are registered to vote (see how below) and then Vote on 2 March (polling booths are open from 7am to 10pm).

Voter Registration and Deadlines

Check if you’re registered – it is easy

Phone the Electoral Office Helpline on 0800 4320 712 from 9am to 4.30pm Monday to Thursday or 9am to 4pm on Friday. You will need to provide your name, address and date of birth.

No ID? Don’t worry

If you don’t currently have any photographic ID needed for voting then please apply for an Electoral ID card – it isn’t hard but your deadline is this Friday 10th Feb. (Apparently out of date photographic ID is ok as long as you still look like your photo. See info.)

This Friday    –    10 Feb 2017    –    Register and apply for Electoral ID Card

You can either apply in person at an office where you don’t need other ID, or you can send in a form together with your student card, disability sticker or other kind of ID (see info) or you can get a Councillor, MLA, MEP or MP to sign a declaration for you (again see info).

This Friday    –    10 Feb 2017    –    Register for postal/proxy vote

Valentine’s Day    –    14 Feb 2017    –    Register for ordinary vote

Your form must be sent or handed in to the relevant office – so allow yourself enough time to post/deliver it.   Find your constituency’s office address at:  http://www.eoni.org.uk/Utility/Contact-Us
