Visual impairments

We are taking steps to make it easier for those who are visually impaired to vote in the 2016 London elections.

We have also produced a leaflet in 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 2016 an information booklet will be 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 other formats on request.

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.

For further information, please contact us.
