Spare a thought for the Arklow voter who lost her engagement ring in the ballot box

Oh NO.

THE COUNT HAS gotten underway and politicians from all over the country have a fairly nervy morning ahead of them.

But perhaps the most anxious person in the country right now is the woman in Arklow who did the unthinkable and accidentally dropped her engagement ring into the ballot box yesterday…

Per RTÉ:


If it’s any consolation to the voter in question, she’s not the first person to make that mistake and likely won’t be the last.

Our thoughts are with you, Arklow Voter <3

(h/t RTÉ Wicklow)

Update: it looks like the ring has been found!

It’s a count centre miracle!
