Well it seems to be that time of year again!

Voting in the UK General election? We’ve found some tips for people with AAC:

  • If you are heading to the polls, an individual over the age of 18 and who is also registered to vote can, with your consent, assist you in filling in the ballot form and post it on your behalf. This must be confirmed in writing.
  • If you are not feeling up to heading out, you can apply for an Emergency Proxy vote until 5pm. Find out more information here: https://www.yourvotematters.co.uk/how-do-i-vote/voting-by-proxy
  • If you turn up at your polling station, you can ask one of the presiding officers to complete the ballot paper with your guidance and post it for you.
  • Your polling station should have disable access, however if you are worried, you can contact your local Electoral Registration Office to confirm they can accommodate you.
