TURNOUT IS REPORTED to be low across the country as voting continues in the two referenda being held today.

Around 3.1 million people are eligible to vote in the referendum to abolish the Seanad and the referendum to set up a new Court of Appeal.

Reports suggest that turnout has been low so far today though polling stations will expect a rush later this evening when people finish work.

The last referendum held in November last year saw turnout of just 33 per cent for the Children’s Rights vote. The all-time low was for the Bail referendum in 1996 where just 29 per cent turned out.

Here are some pictures of some mildly famous politicians and a few ordinary people casting their votes earlier today:
