Share this article


Facebook is no longer accepting referendum related ads from advertisers based outside of Ireland.

The Social Media giant today confirmed they want to help protect the integrity of elections and referendums from 'undue influence'.

Concerns had been raised about international organisations trying to influence the outcome of the upcoming abortion referendum by buying ads on Facebook.

The Green Party has welcomed the move and is now calling on Google to introduce similar restrictions on its YouTube platform.

Today is the last day to register to vote in this month's referendum.

If you're not on register of electors, and want to have your say on if to repeal the eighth amendment, you need to fill in the correct form and get it to your local council office before 5pm.

You can find the forms by clicking this link.
