If you, or someone you know, are visually impaired there are resources to assist you in voting in this election.
We are testing our website to make sure it is compatible with screen readers. We have also produced a leaflet in Braille and large print which provides an introduction to what the election is about, how to vote and where to vote. You can download the large print information at the bottom of this page.
In April, an information booklet is sent to every registered elector in London. This contains the names of all the candidates, mini-manifestos from Mayoral candidates and information on how to vote. This booklet will also be available in Braille, large print or audio on request.
If you wish to receive any of these resources, please contact us at email@example.com / 020 7983 4444.
At the polling station, staff will be able to provide you with a tactile voting device. This is a piece of plastic which is placed over your ballot paper. There is Braille on the plastic and gaps over the space next to each candidate’s name where you make your vote. Polling station staff will be able to talk you through using it.
If you wish, you can take someone with you to the polling station to assist you although you must fill out the ballot papers yourself with your own choices.
We are working with community groups and charities across London and will proactively send out material in Braille and audio to charities who work with people with visual impairments. If you would like to make sure that we have your community group on our database, please contact Euan Holloway at firstname.lastname@example.org
