Don't smoke: sign the referendum easily with your Handy-Signatur Freitag, 05. Oktober 2018

According to information supplied by the Vienna Medical Association and the Austrian Cancer Society, 591,146 people have provided their signatures in support of smoke-free restaurants and bars during the support phase of the "Don't smoke" referendum. But the initiators are hoping for more: the topic is to be dealt with even more intensely so that the ubiquitous protection of non-smokers can be implemented not just in a few years, but as soon as possible. This calls for a plebiscite, which will take place (according to the government) if 900,000 signatures are achieved.


The registration week is scheduled for the time from 1 to 8 October 2018.


How can a signature be provided?

The referendum can be signed between 1 and 8 October 2018 by Handy-Signatur or personally in any municipal office (all signatures already provided during the support phase count as a signature for the referendum).
