Electoral Reform Bill (Committee Stage) completed


Committee stage of the Electoral Reform Bill completed today. Thanks to our franchise team, to committee chair, Steven Matthews TD, and to the housing committee for such positive engagement and support.

This groundbreaking legislation when passed will see an Electoral Commission established for the first time in Ireland, overseeing electoral events, promoting greater participation in our democratic system, promoting greater diversity and gender balance, and giving consideration to (amongst other issues) reducing the voting age.
