It's been revealed that 151,000 young people are not registered to vote in the Eighth Amendment referendum.

The National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) is urging people to make sure they've registered to vote before the deadline next Tuesday May 8th.

A RedC poll for the NYCI last year found that 22% of those aged 18-29 were not registered to vote.

Based on the most recent population data from the CSO, this'd mean up to 151,000 young people risk missing out on their right to vote on May 25th.

Anyone not currently registered needs to fill in the RFA2 form, have it signed and witnessed at a garda station, and then return it by post or by hand to a local city or county council.

Those unsure whether they're registered or not are being advised to Check the Register.

The NYCI has also put together an explainer video:
