Ireland Vote To Pass Divorce Referendum

The Republic of Ireland has voted overwhelmingly in favour of the removal of the existing Article 41.3.2 (i) in Bunreacht na hÉireann being removed, thus changing current references on ‘Divorce’ in the Constitution.

Final Vote:
The final vote was 1,304,949 in favour of these changes (82.1%), with 284,735 against (17.9%).

The changes to Article 41.3.2 (i) will mean that couples won’t have to wait as long before getting a divorce and reduce the waiting time frame, before obtaining same, to two of the previous three years; rather than four out of the previous five years, as exists currently.

Nationally the voter turnout was 50.83% with some 1,727,056 participating.
