Dublin’s 98FM offering listeners free lift to vote

Dublin local station 98FM are offering listeners who intend to vote in the constitutional referendums a lift, if they ask for it on twitter.

Although they’re not explicitly advising listeners to vote one way or the other, their message on twitter – below – and their hashtag do clearly use the word “YES”.

The station say they’re doing their bit to make sure that as many people as possible turn out and vote in the Marriage Equality Referendum (…and the Presidential Candidate Age Referendum!).

As announced by Barry Dunne on air this afternoon, listeners who want to ask 98FM for a lift to the polling station tomorrow simply have to tweet the station with the hashtag “#YESidlikealift“.

[UPDATE] The station are this morning (Friday) asking listeners to text in if they want a lift and sending their “Thunders” to convey them to the polling stations.
