Lynch Urges All Voters To Use Their Vote In The Stability Treaty

Deputy Ciaran Lynch today urged all eligible voters to cast their vote in tomorrow's Stability Treaty referendum.

"While the majority of voters have received their polling cards, I would urge those who have not received them to contact the franchise section in their local authority office, who can confirm if they are still registered to vote. Citizens who are registered to vote - but do not have a polling card are permitted to bring along a valid form of ID in lieu of a polling card.

"This campaign has offered many opportunities for debate and discussion. The time has now come for people to reflect on all they have heard, read and seen, and do the right thing by Ireland and vote Yes to Stability.

"This Treaty is about Stability. It's about protecting the Euro in your pocket. It's about protecting jobs and putting in place an environment for creating new ones. This Treaty gives us certainty. It gives us certainty that we can pay for schools and hospitals at the end of next year. It gives us certainty that we can get past our current difficulties while we grow our economy."
