In the next election :) would it be too much too ask to have the voting on a Saturday so that all citizens can participate.

Unfortunately Fianna FAIL like to exclude students for some reason :(

If Fianna FAIL had their way the next election vote would probably be held on a Monday and the count centrs only open between 7am - 7.30am and OAPs with medical cards would be the only people entitled to vote :(

Hammer, you've 8,573 posts - would you not consider a better thread title and starting it in the forum that's called ELECTIONS?

If we're encouraging new members to understand where discussions go, and how to encourage better engagement , it stands to reason we should ask for more established users to make an effort in where they start the thread and what the thread title is to make it relevant.

I remember the last general election was held around the time of college exams. You're right, they don't like students.

Students are anti-establishment.

We need some students to stand in the next GE :)
Protect education funding.

"Democracy is the idea the the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it, good and hard".

H.L. Mencken would have LOVED Ireland.
