What if I have a disability?

Table of Contents

All forms are available in a larger print version on request.

During an election, there are a number of provisions in place for people with disabilities. These include:

  • a device called a 'selector', which enables blind or partially sighted people to vote unaided,
  • a magnifier which can be borrowed and used in the voting booth to read the ballot paper,
  • pencils with grips to aid those who may need help in gripping a pencil, 
  • ramps allowing easy access to polling stations,
  • and provisions for voters who are unable to vote without assistance to be assisted by a companion.
  • Alternatively, any blind or partially sighted voter can request assistance from the Presiding Officer on duty.
