EARLIER IT EMERGED that the 10 biggest political parties in Ireland spent over €416,000 on election posters last year.

The figure was included in the Standards in Public Office (Sipo) 2016 General Election report.

Posters are a familiar sight all over Ireland around elections, but is the cost worth it? Do they actually influence voters?

We want to know what you think: Should election posters be scrapped?


Poll Results:

Yes (13955)
No, they serve a purpose (1302)
I'm not sure (201)
