The Referendum Commission is raising concerns of a low voter turnout in the upcoming Children’s Rights Referendum.
The Commission believes there has not been enough air-time given to covering the proposed Constitutional amendment.
The Referendum Commission is today launching its €1.9 million information campaign ahead of the November 10th vote.
Over the next 10 days a guide to the referendum will be distributed to just over 10 million Irish homesencouraging people to get out and vote and explaining the proposal.
The Commission Chairperson is Ms. Justice Mary Finlay-Geoghegan.
She is concerned a low-level of media coverage of the campaign may deter voters from turning out.
Ms. Finlay-Geoghegan says she has written to all broadcasters to ask for an increase in allocated air-time.
Meanwhile she says while there is no problem the Commission notes the lack of arguers against the proposed amendment.
