Voting and elections

On December 12 the UK headed to the polls to elect the next Government.

The right to vote independently, and in secret, is a cornerstone of our democracy. Yet blind and partially sighted people continue to face unacceptable barriers to exercising their democratic right to vote.

Hundreds of people took our survey to tell us how they experienced polling day.  The survey was anonymous and the valuable information people shared will be used in our ‘Turned Out’ report 2019 to show the Government what must be improved to ensure the democratic rights of all blind or partially sighted people are respected.

Watch this space for the results of our survey!
