    Well, at least it doesn’t seem to reset overnight! I seriously think the Nays will have it.

    Is it just cos Fine Gael set up the machine?
    If i saw it was endorsed by the yes campaign, then I’d vote no too regardless.

    “Fine Gael” is the smallest print on the thing, judging by the people I watched pressing it, they were very determined they way they walked to it to press No. I think the No campaigners are being more effective for driving sentiment.

    They’re aided by the unwieldiness of the document itself. 392 pages of legalese plus references, it’s easy to convince people there might be a time bomb in there somewhere.

    I vote we have a big party, get all the authors drunk and see if they spill any secrets.

    Probably the wrong location to put it in. Maybe Dundrum would have been better if they wanted to have more yes votes registered.

    what happens when it passes 9999 votes? there doesn’t seem to be more than four characters on each of the displays

    They usually go back to zero dont they?

  8. Ray says:

    I’m probably being cynical, but maybe the intention is that it’ll go back to zero, and then get back up to a few hundred or so. Therefore, “the ayes will have it”. A bit like the shopping centre voting machine equivalent of having a second referendum to get the ‘right’ result.

    Hi !

    Expect the machines to be ‘pulled’ and/or for Fine Gael to place the ‘blame’ on “messers” !
    Anyway : hers’s our [cyber] contribution to the ‘No’ side –

    As far as tactics go was it not always going to be a dud and probably na expensive one at that. I think that while many voted no on the machne to record their valid protest against the ridiculous treaty a few voted no to slap down the arrogance of assuming that yes would automatically win this shopping center poll.
