Total confusion over voting in Tyrrelstown due to building issues
Labour TD for Dublin West Joan Burton has called on the Dublin Sheriff’s Office to take immediate action to resolve confusion at the polling place in Tyrrelstown.
Deputy Burton said:
“There is complete confusion on changes of the voting station at Tyrrelstown polling station which is the polling place for an area of 3,000 homes. The polling station was due to be in the Tyrrelstown community centre. The centre is however closed, along with two schools, due to building risks announced earlier in the week.
“There are no notices on the roads leading up to the centre, on roundabouts or even in the local shops.
“There is just one small notice on the gate of the campus informing voters that their polling place has been moved to a neighboring school, Le Chéile Secondary School.
“This total lack of notice or information has led to very low numbers now voting in the area. I am calling on the Sheriff’s Office who are responsible for the election management to put up notices around the area and let voters know about the change of polling place in Tyrrelstown.”
