Business of Seanad: Motion
Not yet. I will end my contribution by mentioning the importance of voting, regardless of how people choose to vote. At lunchtime, Geraldine, whom I acknowledge, said to me that, if one votes, one gets the representatives one wants, and if one does not, one gets the representatives one deserves.It is awfully important for people to vote. I would like this House to look at how it can make it easier for people to vote. We are asking people to go to council offices and Garda stations before going back to council offices. It just does not work. Perhaps those who are Members of this House in the future could work together to ensure people do not have to jump through hoops to vote in future elections. I encourage everybody to come out and vote.
