I know this is getting off-topic for Ireland but can I ask how the voter 
ID is checked if there are no central registers (or do you mean the 
register of the external county the voter is from) and how a generic 
ballot is provided which will suffice for any number of external county 
races?  Is the ballot just basically write-ins (or is there guidance 
such as a national ledger of candidates for races)?  Does the voter sign 
to waive secrecy?
