ARE you disabled or know someone who is disabled and would like to vote in the general election?
Altogether 10.8million disabled people are eligible to vote in the UK, but not everyone is aware of how to do so.
Leonard Cheshire Disability has a new website called My Vote My Say, which gives information on how to register to vote, the different ways to cast a ballot and how to become a volunteer.
Do you know how accessible your polling station or candidates constituency building is? Could this cause a problem on polling day?
Leonard Cheshire Disability has found 44 per cent of disabled people had experienced discrimination or difficulties when accessing goods and services in the past 12 months.
By visiting the website, you can send a letter to your local candidates asking them to sign up to Leonard Cheshire Disability's pledge to be an accessable MP.
Take a moment to think if any of these circumstances could affect your right to vote and visit www.lcdisability.org/myvotemysay for more information.
