SURVEY: 89% of Her.ie Readers Will Vote YES in Upcoming Marriage Equality Referendum
The vast majority of young Irish women will vote Yes in the upcoming Marriage Equality Referendum.
That’s one finding from A Slice of Ireland, a recent poll of over 20,000 people carried out by Maximum Media – parent company of Her.ie, JOE.ie, HerFamily.ie and SportsJOE.ie.
The research, carried out with the co-operation of readers from all four websites, showed that 89 per cent of Her.ie readers intend to vote in favour of the proposed amendment to the constitution. The amendment would see a new section added, which reads: “Marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex.”
Less than 2 per cent of readers said they planned to vote No in the referendum, while 7 per cent are still undecided.
The finding from Her.ie readers is broadly in line with our sister sites, with 85 per cent of JOE.ie readers also planning to vote Yes.
The referendum takes place on May 22nd and Irish voters on both sites of the debate are being strongly urged to check the electoral register and ensure they are in a position to vote on the day.
Our research found that 12 per cent of readers were not yet registered to vote.
