Poll: Are you voting today?

Will you be exercising your democratic right? Have you already?

THE NATION’S VOTING today in two elections. Three if you happen to live in Dublin West or Longford-Westmeath, where there’s also two Dáil by-elections.

Will you be turning out to vote today in the European and local elections?

Turnout was less than 60 per cent last time out, in 2009. There are predictions it could be even lower this year.

What are your plans?
