RTÉ's full coverage of Elections 2019 will begin at 11am tomorrow on RTÉ One & RTÉ News Now. They will analyse all of the results for the local elections, European Elections, Divorce Referendum & plebicites for directly elected mayors in Cork, Waterford & Limerick.
It is planned that ballot papers for the Divorce Referendum & local elections will be counted first from tomorrow. The European Election papers will be counted up after that on Sunday & the plebicite papers will be counted after that possibly on Sunday night into Monday.
People voting in the Ireland South European Constituency also have the longest ballot paper in this election at 25 inches; which equates to 2 feet long in length. Paschal Sheehy tried to put up a blank example of a ballot paper up on camera when doing a live OB from Cork this evening while being interviewed by Keelin Shanley in studio. There was also some delays from people getting ballot papers put into ballot boxes at polling stations in the West of Ireland today. Pat McGrath, RTÉ's Western Correspondent, said that polling station workers had to get rulers from classrooms for members of the public to the straighten up the ballot papers to put them into the boxes.
I think Studio 3 will be the main studio for the election coverage this year. This will be the first time that this studio will be used since it had it's new curved video wall installed in January this year. The graphics and presentations look to be the same as RTÉ coverage of Election 2016 which was used for the general election in Dáil Eíreann.
Here is the example of the RTÉ Elections 2019 logo. There are small changes applied to the fonts but it still remains as good as ever.
The Late Late Show is also providing live coverage of the RTÉ Exit poll results from Studio 4 at 10pm tonight.
So I expect more presentation graphics to come up here tonight.
