Is í an uair seo a bheidh mé ag vótáil.
Personally, I prefer to use ea and a synthetic future form:
An uair seo is ea a bhead ag vótáil.

kevin wrote:Hm, why the progressive form anyway? If I had had to come up with an Irish sentence, it would have been something like "Vótálfaidh mé an uair seo". But I do notice that I use the progressive form less than other people do, so I'm probably missing something there.
