Results of an exit poll conducted for The Irish Times, released Friday evening, showed voters had favored repeal by a large margin, 68 percent to 32 percent. Exit polling is not necessarily predictive, however, and actual vote-counting will not begin until 9 a.m. Saturday. Official results are not expected to be announced until late Saturday afternoon.
