1. People in Ireland are heading to the polls today to vote in a referendum on legalising same-sex marriage.
Voting began at 7am and will continue until 10pm tonight, with the result expected to be declared on Saturday afternoon.
Those casting their votes will be asked if they agree with the statement: “Marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex”.
2. People making the trip back to Ireland are sharing their journeys using the hashtag #hometovote.
3. And they’re coming in force.
Jesus. The queues in Dublin Airport to back home for the #MarRef are crazy. Halfway down Pier D by the looks of it.
