Electoral (Amendment) (Voting Rights for Residents) Bill 2017: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to amend the provisions of the Electoral Act 1992 to extend the right to vote in Dáil and European Elections to all adults of voting age who have been legally resident in the State for five years; and to provide for related matters.

Is there a seconder?

I second the proposal.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 14 November 2017.
