Maybe the Mods could put this up as a poll??

All of us who don't vote should spoil ballots this time, we're the biggest section of the electorate, for what it's worth we should make our disgust with this system known. If there was more spoiled votes than there was for any one party faction it'd be shameful for them.

The website is inaccurate. My entire family was missing when I checked today. I had to ring the local authority, and they are registered, according to their records. If in doubt, make a phone call.

By spoiling your ballot, you might as well be handing the two main right wing reactionary parties your No. 1.

Totally stupid and pointless exercise.

For God's sake make sure you register and vote. Our forefathers died for us to be given that right.

Hmm. I've thought about this. And it seems to me that their sacrifice could not have been made to put in place the system that is with us today (the inequity; the undignified workplaces; the social injustices; the mindless consumption; the careerist politicians operating in an institutionally-minded game, where they pledge allegiance to the ideals and interests of a political party above all else...).

No - I think they made their sacrifice for an ideal of freedom. The form of this ideal is not what's important - it's the spirit of the ideal. All they did was set a spark to this spirit.

So our duty to our forefathers in my view is to nurture the flame of what they set alight. Because, let's be honest - the reality that came out of their sacrifice was a long way from what I understand to have been their intent and hope.

You are not really protesting by not voting.

IF you want to protest against the current system, vote for an independent or a first time candidate or anyone who isn't affiliated with the main parties.

If you don't vote, your vote isn't counted.

The only way to change the system is from within, unfortunately.

FF love people who don't vote - particularly those on social welfare. They can be clobbered without any political consequences.

Bad and all as the system is now, the Dail is where the action is. Don't try and tell me FF haven't changed this country. How did they do it? That's right, by getting elected.
For Gawd's sake VOTE! There must be someone standing in your constituency who would be worthy of a vote.
