Ss. 5(1), 26 (in part)* :Invalid. Reynolds v Attorney General (HC, 16 Jan 73). * The First Sch. in the Act refers to Dublin Corporation Act 1849 (12 & 13 Vict., c.85) but S.I. No. 121 of 1963 refers to 1894 which appears to be in error. **The Corrupt and Illegal Practices Prevention Act, 1883, First Sch. states s. 53(1) and (3)  but S.I. No. 245 of 1963 appears to be in error in mentioning s. 63(1) and (3). In S.I. No. 121 of 1963 there appears to be an error in stating that the words "registration officer" exist in s. 62 of Electoral Act 1923 (No. 12 of 1923) which they do not. In S.I. No. 245 of 1963, there appears to be an error in referring to rule 20(2) while the First Sch. to the Election Act 1963 refers to rule 26(2).
