Today Ireland is voting on a referendum that would legalize gay marriage and everyone is coming back to the country to make it happen.

Voting on the referendum must be done in-person. Many of Ireland's 3 million eligible voters live abroad, however, so in order to vote yes or no on the proposition that "Marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex," a number of them have had to travel back to the country. If the referendum passes, Ireland will be the first country in the world to legalize gay marriage by popular vote.

By air:

By land:
