Online And On the Ground In Newbridge: Electoral Commission Launches Referendum Resources For Voters

Ms. Justice Marie Baker underscored the Electoral Commission's commitment to providing impartial and accessible information to the public.

Chair of Ireland's electoral commission, Ms. Justice Marie Baker, took a hands-on approach to engage with the public, visiting Newbridge Silverware to discuss the upcoming March 8 referendums while also getting a firsthand look at silver making.

Yesterday marked the official launch of the independent information campaign for the Constitutional Referendums on Care and the Family.

Ms. Justice Marie Baker underscored the Electoral Commission's commitment to providing impartial and accessible information to the public.

An Coimisiún Toghcháin, now shouldering responsibilities previously held by the Referendum Commission, introduced an information booklet set to be delivered to 2.3 million homes before the vote.

The booklet takes a neutral stance, presenting facts without leaning towards any particular viewpoint.

 

In tandem with the booklet, the Commission unveiled a dedicated referendum website (www.ElectoralCommission.ie/Referendums), offering comprehensive online resources on the March 8 votes and general voting details.

Post-launch, Ms. Justice Marie Baker embarked on a series of campaign information visits in Tullamore, Newbridge, Sligo, and Galway, engaging with a diverse range of groups, from factory workers to community sports groups and the Traveller community.
