Help Spread the Word!
Reinstate 48 (R48) is an entirely a volunteer initiative. There are no campaign funds to promote the R48 initiative on TV and radio. Therefore, in order for the R48 initiative to be successful, we are all dependant on each other to Spread the Word.
Here are some of the things you can do to Spread the Word about the R48 initiative.

Spread the Word by asking your preferred local candidate if they have taken the Reinstate 48 pledge? If they answer yes, then let them know they’ll be getting your first preference vote. If they answer no, ask them why not?
Tell them if they want your vote then they will have to make the Reinstate 48 Candidate Pledge so that you too will have a vote in important issues that arise in the future (i.e. another Bank Bailout or the privatisation of Irish Water).
Below is script that you may wish to email to your preferred candidate.
To contact your preferred local candidate please visit one of the sites below:
If there is a political party that we have omitted from the above list please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know and we will add it to the list. Unfortunately the Reinstate 48 Team do not have the resources to maintain a current list of all Independents running in the next general election. However when you make the Reinstate 48 Candidate Pledge your name will appear on the list of candidates on the Reinstate 48 Candidate page.
