Fitzgerald urges students to vote
The Minister for Children has appealed to students who had long campaigned for weekend voting to come out to back the children’s referendum.

Ms Fitzgerald was yesterday launching a new website, childrensreferendum.ie.
“I hope the Saturday date will attract more voters but it’s up to the young people in the universities now, who have always looked for a Saturday vote, to come out and vote.”
The Referendum Commission would be providing a booklet and campaignAlso yesterday, the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI)has added its voice to the Yes campaign following a ballot of its members.
