Access to elections: Call for Evidence

This Access to elections: Call for Evidence looks to support the Government’s commitment to ensure the electoral system is accessible for all electors.

Responses to the Call for Evidence will:

  • enhance the Government’s understanding of the experiences of disabled people in registering to vote and casting their vote.
  • help identify if current mechanisms to support disabled people to participate in the democratic process are sufficient; and
  • identify examples of good practice provided by Electoral Service Teams to disabled people at elections.

The Cabinet Office is seeking comments by 17:00 Tuesday 14 November 2017.
