The polling station staff are there to help you. If you are not sure what you need to do, or if you need any help to cast your vote, please ask the staff. They will be happy to help you and can guide you through the voting process.
If you have a disability, there are some items available at each polling station that may assist you. There will be a large print sample ballot paper, a magnifying sheet and a Braille voting device to help if you have a visual impairment.
You can take your phone into the polling booth to help you if you use assistive technology such as text-to-speech apps, a magnifier or torch.
If you have a disability, a friend or relative is allowed to help you cast your vote. This will need to be recorded by the polling staff. You can also ask the Presiding Officer to mark the ballot paper for you.
Our polling stations are accessible and each polling booth has a wheelchair accessible compartment. However, if you are unable to access the polling station because of a physical disability, the Presiding Officer is able take the ballot paper to you.
If you would prefer to show your photo identification in private, for example, if you wear a face covering for religious reasons, ask the staff.
