Poll: How will you vote in the Seanad referendum?

Do you want the Seanad saved or abolished?

A REFERENDUM ON whether the Seanad should be kept or abolished will take place this Friday.

You can read the arguments for and against the abolition of the Seanad here.

With just three days to go until voters head to the polls we want to know what side of the debate you are on. It is worth noting that if you vote yes, you are in favour of abolishing the Seanad and if you vote no, you want the Seanad to be kept.

Today’s poll therefore is: How will you vote in the Seanad referendum?

Poll Results:

No, it should be kept. (4852)
I don't know. (2216)
Yes, it should be abolished. (1709)
I can't/won't be voting. (673)
