Poll: Should we lower the voting age in Ireland?

The Taoiseach has said there will be a referendum on it next year – do you think it’s a good idea?

WE ARE NOW almost two years on from the Constitutional Convention recommendation that Ireland lowers its voting age to 17.

The Convention even went further with 48% saying it should be lowered to 16. The Taoiseach has promised there will be a referendum on the issue next year, so we want to know how you’d vote.

Should we lower the voting age in Ireland?

Poll Results:

No (3648)
