Terms & Conditions for Alumni Taught Master's Scholarships
As a graduate of Maynooth University, you have the right, provided that you are also an Irish citizen, to vote in the election of members of Ireland’s Upper House, Seanad Éireann. NUI graduates elect three members of Seanad Éireann (as also do the graduates of TCD, the University of Dublin). The legal and other mechanisms to extend this right to graduates of other Irish universities and colleges have not yet been put in place.
The NUI Seanad Éireann Register is a list of the names, addresses and qualifications of NUI graduates who are eligible to vote for the three members of the NUI constituency returned to Seanad Éireann. The Register is administered by NUI.
To vote, you must be included in the NUI Register of Electors. If you are not already on the register but would like to be, there is an opportunity until 26 February each year, to lodge your claim for inclusion in the register which comes into operation on 1 June. For NUI graduates living abroad, because the ballot is a postal one, the Seanad Éireann election gives you a unique opportunity to cast your vote in an Irish parliamentary election.
Visit www.nui.ie/elections/seanad-register.asp for more information on the above.
How do you know if you're on the Seanad Éireann Electoral Register?
Copies of the Register are available in the University library and the libraries of the institutions within the NUI and the National Library. The register is also available for examination in the NUI reception at 49 Merrion Square, Dublin 2. Alternatively, graduates can check the register by contacting the NUI at email@example.com or by telephone on +353 1 4392424.
Changed your address?
Graduates should notify the Registration Officer at the NUI of any changes of address in writing, by post or by email and the following information should be supplied:
Full name at registration
Any other form of name used (e.g. Irish, single, married, etc.)
Date of birth
NUI degree(s) and other NUI qualification(s)
