    How come the corrupt mass media can take photos in the polling station and I can’t take a selfie?

    PS I don’t do selfies.

    The mums that I spoke to outside my child’s Montessori – all voting No. Huge crowd at daily mass today – all trooped across to vote afterwards – wouldn’t say there were too many Yes voters there.

    I’m a fervent Yes voter but I’m sensing a strong drift towards No. I really hope I’m wrong.

      don’t panic @Scarylady

      It’ll take more than a rear ended FR from Stansted or a packed morning mass to make the difference here.

      The turnout is looking off scale.

      I can tell you straight every single one of the 8 working for me are enthusiastic YES votes, in my family it’s 7:3

      I think it’s a 10-15 point spread

        I sincerely hope you’re right – and that potential Yessers turn out to vote (& not get diverted by Friday night shenanigans). To me – the high turnout is indicative of a very high No vote.

          I was on the #HomeToVote thread on twitter last night and it was very heartwarming. Lots of repealers and yes votes making their way home.

          I don’t want to be cocky or complacent, but I am hopeful. I am so hopeful for change.

          nah no overlord conspiracy I’m afraid, no influence, I picked them well they’re just a bunch of fine young local people mostly who voted for the 1st time & were excitedly chatting amongst themselves most of the morning about how they voted – you’ll be glad to know I let them all away for a couple of hours to get their vote in. but whatever. 8-0.

      I live in Bogmcbackward (not actual name) in Connacht and there has been a lot of support for yes here.
