It's been confirmed that Donegal's islands will go to the polls one day ahead of the mainland in the European and Local Elections.
Voters on the six Donegal islands, which have a total electorate of 753, will cast their ballots on Thursday May 22nd, with the rest of the county voting on Friay May 23rd.
It's also been confirmed that on polling day, all paopers will be placed in the same ballot box, and on Saturday May 24th, all ballot boxes will be brought to the Aura Leisure Centre in Letterkenny, where the votes will be segregated and verified.
The European votes will then be sent to the count centre in castlebar, while votes cast in the local elections will be transferred to the individual count centres in the five electoral areas.
