The enabling provisions are Electoral Act 1992 (23/1992), ss. 46 and 111. Section 46 was substituted by Electoral Amendment Act 2007 (14/2007), s. 1(a), and s. 111 remains in force. This SI appears to remain in force - it prescribes the form of nomination papers to be used at a Dáil election and specifies the documents which an elector may be required to produce at a polling station. However, it has been superseded by S.I. Nos. 156 of 2007 and 369 of 2012, and should be revoked.
