All about voting
(Supported by the Cabinet Office)
Only a third of people with a learning disability vote in the UK – Mencap want to help more people with a learning disability to use their right to vote.
Are you registered to vote? You need to be registered to be able to vote.
This is the first step to having your say in elections, and you can now register online.
That’s why Mencap produced easy guides to tell you everything you need to know about registering to vote and voting. You can either download the full guide, or just the section/s you need.
Join Mencap’s campaign – Hear my voice
Every day, more than 1.4 million people with a learning disability and their families face issues like poor healthcare, hate crime and social isolation. But these issues are rarely, if ever, debated at election time and most politicians don’t understand how these things impact on people’s lives.
This can change. People with a learning disability – and the millions of family members, carers and support workers connected to them – can make their voices heard on the issues that matter to them at the 2015 General Election.
Join Mencap’s campaign – Hear my voice. Together with Mencap, you can tell politicians what issues matter to the learning disability community. Together our voices are louder.
