Access to vote

6 May 2010 by Jennifer

From the Polls Apart website:

At every election, thousands of disabled voters are denied the chance to play an equal part in our democracy. Scope’s ‘Polls Apart’ campaign aims to end this exclusion.

There’s an easy way to contribute to the campaign: by filling in a quick report (online or by post) on access at your polling station (or indeed on the process of making your postal vote).

I’ve printed out the first two pages of the PDF to take with me to the polling station in a bit, to help me remember what to look for while I’m there. But at least some of the questionnaire could be done from memory, if you didn’t know about this before you went. (Sorry this is rather late notice – only found out about it myself this morning.)

Thanks to barakta for the heads-up.

Appreciation, criticism & new ideas all welcome...
