It’s very important for people with a learning disability to have easy read materials available to support them to be able to vote in elections. We have worked with the Electoral Commission to produce accessible guides to support people in being able to vote.

We have also worked with the main political parties to call for there to be easy read versions of their manifestos, which are available below.
