Over 3.2 million people are eligible to vote on if the country should change its constitution to allow gay and lesbian couples to get married!

The will be asked if they agree with the following statement:

“Marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex.”

No mail in voting was allowed, so tons of Irish natives are traveling back to their homeland to take part in the historic vote!

Tons of support for the movement has taken over social media. Check out the celebs who have taken to Twitter voicing their support (below)!

The votes will be counted tomorrow for what will hopefully result in Ireland becoming the 20th country to legalize same-sex marriage across the nation!
