‘The Straight Vote is Crooked’ Vote NO!

Fianna Fail proposed changing the voting system to that similar to the UK

The Third Amendment of the Constitution Bill, 1968, proposes

To substitute for the present system of voting at Dáil elections the “straight vote” system in single-member constituencies;

To establish a Commission to determine constituencies, subject to the right of the Dáil to amend the constituencies as so determined; and
To provide that whenever the Dáil is dissolved the outgoing Ceann Comhairle may be returned, without a contest, as a second deputy for a constituency chosen by him which consists of, or includes a part of, the constituency he represented before the dissolution.
