1 Mins read

County Derry Sinn Féin Republican Youth have encouraged young people to claim their vote.

Launching the initiative a spokesperson for the group said “Applications for postal and proxy votes are now open and with so many Irish people spread across the globe working and studying, the sheer number of people could make a massive difference to the outcome of the assembly elections.”

“With the single transferable vote system we have here your vote is worth even more and could make the difference as we have seen many times before.”

“In the last assembly term we seen the tide turn on the issue of equal marriage from the majority of members voting against to at the 3rd attempt the motion would have passed if it werent for the DUP using a petition of concern. If we are to see progressive politics here young people will play a huge part in bringing it about.”

“The recent controversy with the Dungiven leisure centre shows the devestation and how these decisions impact our communities.”

“Young people are always the first to be targeted by governments when it comes to cuts, attempts to abolish the EMA and under 25’s missing out on the new “living wage” spring to mind.”

“Young people are becoming increasingly politicised as recent years have shown through the Scottish independence referendum, the Marriage equality referendum and the masses of students flocking to register to vote in the upcoming Irish general election amd we intend to help increase that engagement.”
