Voter Initiative - Shape Your City

Cork City Council has launched the ‘Shape Your City: Use Your Vote’ voter registration campaign which is aimed at foreign workers and immigrants new to Cork City. The programme aims to highlight their voting rights, how to register for voting in the local & European elections and to outline the benefits of becoming active participants in civic life.

In launching the Initiative in Voxpro, Mahon, Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr Mick Finn gave a strong backing to the programme: “I think people who are new to the city - whether they are working with multinationals, such as Voxpro for a couple of years, or looking to make a permanent home here - make up an integral part of the multicultural nature of life in Cork City. What Cork City Council is doing here today is making it clear that the first step in greater involvement in Cork City is registering to vote. Have a say by registering today!”

Cork City council are now seeking to roll out the ‘Shape Your City; Use your vote’ initiative across the city. We are looking for interested medium to large businesses, small to medium business groups and community voluntary sector groups who we can partner with to promote the initiative.

If your business is interested in this initiative, please contact Stephen Murphy, Community and Enterprise, Cork City Council on 021-4924325 / 0879814803.
