Well, if you were over 18 you might have been out voting. And for the first time you can view all the counts from the November 1982 election right here, on IrelandElection.com. This is the first time they’ve been fully available online.
This was the last of 3 general elections to be held within a year and a half. And it was a record one for Fine Gael, giving them their best result in a general election (only to be bettered by their 2011 performance). Women TD’s also increased their share from 8 seats to 14.
More general elections to come.
