A quick important message about polling day and disability is below –
At the last General Election, Scope found that 68% of polling stations had one or more access barriers to disabled people.
With one day till polling day Scope is asking if you can help them get a clearer picture of the barriers disabled people face by filling in a Polls Apart survey when voting.
Whether you vote by post or at a polling station you can fill in the survey in three ways:
1. Go to www.pollsapart.org.uk and complete the survey online. The website also provides lots of information on disabled people’s voting rights and other ways that you can get involved with the campaign.
2. Download a survey from www.pollsapart.org.uk and use the freepost address:
Scope – Polls Apart
Freepost LON 8654
3. Call us on election day on 020 7619 7370
Scope will use the findings to continue to change things for the better.
Thank you for your support.
