Forget popping down the road to the polling station, expats from Ireland have taken things to a whole new level for the referendum on gay marriage.
Irish people have travelled from far and wide back to their home country in order to vote on the hotly-debated issue and the #hometovote trend on Twitter has shown the lengths they have been prepared to go to to have their say.
From taking a break from studying for finals at Cambridge University to flying back to the Emerald Isle from Bangkok, Kenya and Abu Dhabi, it seems there's no stopping the Irish from voting.
First came the tweets…

Voters are being asked one simple, specific question on whether to amend Article 41 of the 1937 Constitution by adding a new clause to a section titled The Family.
It asks voters to support or reject a change to the 78-year-old document which reads: "Marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex."
It does not suggest any change to the definition of the family or remove any outdated references in the section, including those that state a woman's place is at home.
If passed, it will be the 34th constitutional amendment - and only 22 years since Ireland decriminalised homosexuality.Suggest a correction
