Election 2020 – Issues you can raise on the doorstep!
As you may be aware, the General Election will be held on Saturday, 8th February, 2020. Politicians will be calling to your door and looking for your vote – this is a great opportunity to raise the important issues affecting you.
This is the time for our voices to be heard! The most significant way to make an impact as a community is for a few core issues to be highlighted by those affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus across the country.
With this in mind, we are suggesting a few talking points which you may want to consider raising when canvassers call to the door. Don’t be shy! Let them know what you think and what your ideas are for a better future… We need Equality Now!
Please ensure you are eligible to vote! Go online and visit www.checktheregister.ie or contact your local county council to ensure you are registered to vote on 8th February.
If you are not registered, you need to download and complete the RFA2 form which can be downloaded at checktheregister.ie. You must have the form signed/witnessed at a Garda Station. The completed forms need to be returned by post or by hand to your local county council by Wednesday, 22nd January to be eligible to vote. Visit www.checktheregister.ie now!
