Friday closing date for postal and proxy votes against Brexit – Kearney
Sinn Féin MLA Declan Kearney said today people who want to vote against Brexit from Europe but who can't attend the polls on June 23rd must apply for a postal or proxy vote by this Friday, June 3rd.
Declan Kearney said:
"While Sinn Féin believes in a different European Union – a social EU based on equality and citizens’ rights – we will be campaigning for a strong vote against Brexit.
“The imposition of border controls and economic barriers are not in the interest of the people of this island.
“We will be calling on the electorate to vote ‘Remain’.
“If you are unable to make it to the polling station on 23rd June you can apply to vote by post or nominate someone to vote for you by proxy.
“People entitled to a postal or proxy vote are those housebound due to illness; a student away at University or those working away from home during weekdays.
“Applications to secure a postal/proxy vote in this election close on Friday 3rd June at 5pm.
“So I would urge everyone who requires such a vote to secure it now.” ENDS/CRÍÓCH
