“Voting is a civic duty and a responsibility, and our job is to persuade people that they have a very, very powerful voice and the best way to use it is at the ballot box.”

In this episode of Just the Chats, we are joined by Art O’Leary, Chief Executive of the Electoral Commission (An Coimisiún Toghcháin).

Art joined us to chat about the role of the Electoral Commission, the upcoming European Elections and future plans to make voting in Ireland more accessible.
