Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has encouraged students eligible to vote in Friday's referendum on the 8th amendment to make contact with their Students’ Union if they require assistance to travel home to vote.

The party's Further and Higher Education Spokesperson said:

"NUS-USI which represents students in the north is offering assistance for students to travel #hometovote in the referendum. Students who require assistance should make contact with their Students’ Union as soon as possible to avail of this. 

"The Union of Students in Ireland (USI) is also running a social media carpooling campaign #VoterMotor to assist with lifts to polling stations on Friday.

"It is important that everyone who is eligible to vote has their say in this very important referendum.

"Sinn Féin has been campaigining for the removal of the 8th amendment from the constitution to allow for legislation for termination of pregnancy to be brought forward which provides for access to appropriate healthcare for women in an effective and compassionate way.

"I would encourage everyone to come out on Friday and vote Yes to repeal the 8th amendment."
