Did your family member get to vote for the first time in 1918?
On 6th February 1918 the Representation of the People, Act 1918 received royal assent and was signed into law. This vote changed the face of Ireland and led to the landslide victory for Sinn Féin in the December 1918 General Elections and the establishment of Dáil Éireann in January 1919.
