Thank you for taking the time to add your views to ongoing work on Seanad reform.
Do you usually exercise your right to vote in Seanad Elections?
Do you believe that when the Irish people voted to retain the Seanad in 2013, that indicated an intention to reform the Seanad and the way its members are elected?
The Manning Report proposed to reform the Seanad by citizens registered to vote electing a majority of Seanad panel seats elected in much the same way as the 6 University Panel seats. This would add to the diversity of the electorate which is currently restricted to about 1200 TDs, Senators and local Councillors. Do you agree in principle with the proposal to diversify the electorate in this way?
The Manning Report recommends extending the right to vote by post in Seanad elections to Irish citizens overseas. Do you agree in principle in granting a vote in Seanad elections to Irish citizens living overseas?
