Who we are
The Referendum Commission is an independent body that explains the subject matter of referendum proposals, promotes public awareness of a referendum, and encourages the electorate to vote. It is open to the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government to appoint a Commission any time a referendum is to be held.Discover
