It is absolutely correct. I have been an impersonation officially at two Irish elections and on both occasions weve had Garda come into the polling station to arrest people of doing exactly what you described.

There are plenty of Irish expats whos family continue to put them on the live register, which is not illegal. But the minimum they stand in front of a presiding officer and request a voting paper they commit a criminal offense.
What's the punishment for it?

One is not loyal to a set of lines on the map but to a society. As long as England gave you the possibility to live where you wanted - not there - it was fine. Now you expect an other society to put up with the EU, so again you can profit without partaking. ROFL.
Giving nothing, running off when no longer given what you want. You must be joy of a family member.

Come to think of it: For once the US seems to have the "fairest" system? They tax you where ever you live but they also let you vote.
