Voting if you have a disability

We offer a range of support to disabled voters, including voters with a learning disability. Most of our polling stations:

  • are wheelchair accessible and we provide ramps where needed
  • have a polling booth adapted for wheelchair users 
  • have large print versions of ballot papers, along with aids to enable blind voters to mark their ballot papers without help.

If you are a disabled voter and you need support to complete a ballot paper on your own, you can take a friend or relative to the polling station to help you.

The presiding officer at the polling station can also help you fill in your ballot paper.

If you don't want to go to the polling station to vote, you can vote by post.
