New vote system for GAA Congress

Published 29/11/2010

Electronic voting is to be introduced at next year's annual GAA Congress in Mullingar.

The new system will replace the traditional method of voting by a show of hands.

The GAA's Director of Communications Lisa Clancy said: "We want to move the GAA into a more modern era. What will happen is that you'll have a speaker up speaking and when a vote is taken, you'll be able to see the result straight away on the screen."

"It will be fast and accurate. It's a big step and we'll review it after this year's Congress."
