Voting if you have a disability
We offer a range of support to disabled voters, including voters with a learning disability.
You can contact us to find out about the voting process and your local polling station. We can also provide details about:
- disabled parking spaces and entrance ramps
- low level polling booths
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 leading officer at the polling station can also help you fill in your ballot paper.
If you do not want to go to the polling station to vote you can vote by post or by proxy.
