This was a golden opportunity to campaign to allow Irish citizens all over the world to retain the right to vote, and indeed use the postal vote system.
The opposition and independents dropped the ball here.


You would need a referendum for that
Might have been better than the relatively minor issues put before the people.

TI's exit poll was much better I thought, could it be unlocked?. This one gives clunky results and not that many people care about the presidential age ref.

Yes the % are wrong. The 100% is divided between all 4 options. It looks a bit odd.

you need two polls for it to work properly.

Ah yes I see that now.

It would ad further confusion to change it back to the original thread at this point. Apologies if people find it an inconvenience but this thread will be locked by the end of the day so the totals can be analysed out correctly to fix it.

The total votes in brackets do give a clearer picture if you ignore the % if the vote for now.

The presidential votes add up to 50%, the marriage votes add up to 50%, I'm hoping most pinsters can extrapolate from that. :)

If there's ere a spare yes vote lyin around would someone please cast it (or them) for me.

Saw a claim that the scales were being tipped to yes by returning ex pats who were on THE social media. I suppose if Aer Lingus, Ryanair etc. confirm that there was no surge of inbound in the days prior, we still won't have the figures for foot passengers on the ferries.

I asked the girl who stamped my vote about the turnout.
She said it was about 25% (at 12 noon).

Just to add, I'm of the opinion that all election/referendum days should be holidays.
Or else hold them on Saturdays.

Polls stay open until 10pm, unless you think it woudl be good for the public houses of the land so the people could reflect in friendly surroundings the magnanimity of the day?

I've yet to vote but judging by my Facebook feed - the important thing is, not so much to vote YES but to let the whole world know that you've voted YES. (They're actually trying to outdo one another in the self-glorification stakes. One "friend" announced that she had voted, "A Big Fat YES," complete with a smilie selfie taken outside the polling booth. Surely the Nobel Prize for Humanitarian endeavours awaits such selfless folk...

So judgemental. Are you 'No' voter by any chance?
