Accessibility for Elections

We have resources available to support disabled people and people with learning disabilities and/or autism to vote with confidence. These include information on how to register to vote, what forms of photo ID will be accepted, how to apply for free voter ID if it’s needed, what will happen at the polling station, and how to get more support. 

The My Vote My Voice campaign has also produced resources, with support from the Electoral Commission, to support people with learning disabilities and/or autism to vote. These include a ‘voting passport’ people can use to help polling station staff to easily understand any reasonable adjustments they require.

Voting Passport

A voting passport is an A4 sheet of paper to hand to polling staff so they easily can understand the reasonable adjustments needed to enable the person to vote.
