The chair of the Referendum Commission has urged all citizens to vote in next week's divorce referendum.
Next week's vote will take place alongside the European elections, local elections and plebiscites on directly elected mayors.
The proposed constitutional change encompasses two parts, but there'll only be one 'Yes or No' choice for voters on the ballot paper.
The first part relates to the length of time couples must have been living apart for before applying for a divorce.
Currently, they have to live apart for four out of the previous five years.
The proposed change would instead allow the Oireachtas to legislate about the issue - with the Government proposing reducing the waiting time from four to two years.
A second proposed change relates to foreign divorces.
At the moment, a person who has obtained a foreign divorce abroad which is not recognised in the State cannot remarry.
If the referendum passes, that would be replaced with a provision explicitly stating that the Oireachtas can legislate to recognise foreign divorces.
Speaking in Dublin Central this today, chairperson of the Referendum Commission - Ms Justice Tara Burns - told gathered students that only those who vote end up having a say.
She observed: "Cohorts of voters who typically have a low turnout therefore effectively give others a greater say in the basic law of this country.
“This is your Constitution as much as it is anyone else’s. But if you don’t vote, you are allowing others make important decisions for you.”
The referendum takes place on Friday May 24th.
