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 need support to complete a ballot paper, you can take either a:

  • carer
  • friend
  • relative

They do not have to be eligible to vote and will not need to bring their photo ID. However, they will need to be over 18 years old.

The leading 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:
