Voting in elections
People with disabilities
We try to make it as easy as possible for everyone to vote.
Assistance at the polling station
- Trained staff who are aware of voters who may need assistance, including those with language difficulties, and are available to help.
- Wheelchair access and low-level polling booths in most of our polling stations
- Large-print ballot papers, tactile voting devices and magnifiers are available at all polling places.
- Any person with a disability is permitted to have a companion or to ask the polling station staff to help them complete their ballot paper. A simple form will need to be completed before the ballot paper can be issued.
