Sinn Féin has said they are ‘devastated’ that the ‘Vote Early, Vote Often’ strategy that they used so successfully for decades is no longer an option after tougher security at polling stations we can reveal.
Known for their crafty political strategies the ‘vote often’ mantra was one that they had down to a fine art.
We spoke with a Sinn Féin election worker who told us:
“To say we are devastated would be an understatement. I voted there at 7am under my own name and went to vote for a second time about an hour ago and was turned away after they looked at the ID that clearly wasn’t me. This is not good. Who do they think they are? Unbelievable.”
