THE National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) has welcomed that 1032 people in Donegal have been added to the supplementary register in advance of Friday’s general election, and is calling on young people to ensure they cast their vote.
“The figures from the local authority indicate that 1032 people in Donegal added their names to the supplementary register before the February 9th deadline, which is to be welcomed,” James Doorley, NYCI deputy director said.
“Now, however, the focus must turn to getting out the vote. NYCI is encouraging 18 to 25 year olds in particular to make sure they make their voices heard on Friday the 26th of February,” he added.
The Youth Council is also making instructions available to first time voters on youth.ie/vote, letting them know what they need, and what to expect when they get to the polling station.
