The Military Authorities have advised on the number of Defence Forces personnel in each of the local electoral areas in County Clare as follows:

2020 2021*
Clare: Ennis 0 0
Clare: Ennistymon 0 0
Clare: Kilrush 33 0
Clare: Killaloe 23 0
Clare: Shannon 58 0
Clare: No electoral area 55 182
*Defence Forces personnel are required to fill out a Postal Voting form annually and return to their relevant Units. Once returned, the Defence Forces send them onto their relevant County Council who then assign the Electoral area within the County, depending on the requirement to do so. This requirement is based on the need for a voting process (General Election). In 2021, there was no Electoral requirement for assigning the Electoral area by the County Council due to the lack of election of any type.
