        DCU was there too for a while. Can’t remember why.

        Student politics wankers trying to out wank each other, most likely.

      Thats only in colleges.

      MANY MANY other register to vote campaigns took place over the last number of months.

      And voting YES is also another. Some students who will vote NO also registered. Student Unions were using money and resources that were meant for them as well.

        Voting can’t get much easier then walking into a room and writing a few numbers in a box unless they produce an app for that. They should make it compulsory or if you don’t vote for 3 or 4 elections you get removed from the register all together. Couldn’t be arsed, don’t get a vote.

        They should improve the voting registration process though. You move, you register to vote somewhere else. You shouldn’t be getting voting cards into every address you ever lived. Regardless how many times you tell them to take you off the register.

        One of those guys called at the door, i said I live here now and take me off the register for my home home address. Voting card still arrived there. Apparently its the responsibility of the local council and they don’t talk to each other.

          They also take you off the register without informing you though. It’s happened to many people I know, many many times.

          Also voting on a weekday can be hard if you’re a person who has a long commute or travels for work. Or if you work long shifts, or if your local public transport is crap, or if you’re old, or if you have a disability.

          And registration isn’t that easy either. Trying to find an address for where to send the form can be surprisingly hard depending on your council website. And is riddles with errors too.

          In summary – your experience is not the same as everybody else’s experience.

      I’d say most SUs were sensible enough to encourage them to register at their college address since Ireland insists on voting on a week day.
