Podcast: accessible voting this May

With the upcoming elections in May, The Blind Spot caught up Peter Stanyon, CEO of the Association of Electoral Administrators.

If you’re blind, partially sighted or delivering an election and want to know what you’re entitled to in order to help you vote, here’s what you need to know:

  • You’re entitled to use a tactile voting device
  • There is a large print ballot ballot paper available in every polling station
  • You can bring a companion into the polling station to help you
  • Phones are allowed inside the polling booth
  • Postal votes are still paper-based
  • You can nominate someone to vote on your behalf via a proxy vote

 

Don’t get caught out on polling day – make sure to call your local elections office with any questions ahead of time.
