    Trinity Seanad Election 2007: Ballot Papers to Arrive on Monday, 25th June

    I expected the ballot papers to have arrived to Trinity gradutes by now for the upcoming election. However, democracy must wait for the dinosaurs in An Post – They will not be delivering ballots until this Monday, 25th June. It should arrive by registered post then. If there is no one there to sign for your ballot paper, it may be collected from the Post Office up to 3 days later. It will then return to Trinity. Contact me (Enable Javascript to see the email address) if you have any questions or if you are unsure about the address the ballot will be sent to.
