Parents – make sure your children avail of a postal vote

Parents who want to make sure that their sons and daughters can exercise their democratic right should get them to sign up for a postal vote if the are not in a position to return home on polling day, according to election candidate John Kelly.   "If the Government is not going to make it easy for tomorrow’s leaders to have an influence on the outcome of this election, hopefully parents can help facilitate the process," said Cllr. Kelly.   "Based on my canvass, the mood is for change; people from all demographics have enough of the forgotten status label that the Government has put on rural Ireland and hopefully they will show their feeling in the ballot box," Kelly concluded.
