Sinn Féin assembly candidate for East Derry, Caoimhe Archibald, has called on people to ensure they are able to claim their vote for the 5th of May.
Dr. Archibald said “The upcoming assembly election could be an historic one and every vote will count. That is why I would call on those who are working or studying away from home on the 5th of May to ensure they have applied for a postal or proxy vote.”
“The recent elections in the south saw thousands of people make long journeys home so that they could play their part in sending a message to the establishment parties that they are fed up with their corruption and greed. In 2015 we saw the same for the Marriage equality referendum which was a massive achievement. Sinn Féin will continue to push for this right to be extended to the North in the new assembly term.”
She added “The deadline for postal and proxy votes is Thursday the 14th April. Registration forms are available online to download and send to the electoral office or you can contact any of your local Sinn Féin representatives who will be happy to help.”
