Election Turnout in Ireland: measurement, trends and policy implications
This Note discusses issues with the measurement of turnout, using data from the CSO on the voting-age population, before presenting an overview of the trends in turnout at Irish General Elections, local elections and referendums, including available data on the variation in turnout across different groups (age and socio-economic background). It then gives voter turnout at European elections, comparing Ireland with other European countries. The Note concludes by presenting survey data designed to explain non-voting and briefly considers policies designed to address low levels of turnout and participation in conventional politics.
The Oireachtas Public Petitions System presents an important new avenue for individuals to participate in the democratic process. Through submitting petitions online and by post, members of the public will be able to take their policy concerns directly to the heart of the Oireachtas.
