Divorce Referendum

Posted April 17th, 2019

On Friday I made an order appointing Friday 24 May, 2019 as the polling day for the referendum on the proposal for the amendment of the Constitution contained in the Thirty-eighth Amendment of the Constitution (Dissolution of Marriage) Bill 2016.

Whatever your views are on the proposals in the referendum, I would like to encourage voters to go to their polling station during this 15 hour period on 24 May and have your say in the outcome of the referendum.

Polling will take place between the hours of 7 am and 10 pm. The total electorate currently stands at some 3.3 million. Are you registered to vote? If not, you can be added to the supplementary register – check here.
