A MEMBER OF the Social Democrats voted twice in the February general election, it’s being claimed. 

The person is alleged to have voted in two different polling stations on Saturday, 8 February.

Another member of the Social Democrats reported the alleged incident to senior members of the party and An Garda Síochána.
