Thanks to easy-read-online for preparing and sharing this important info about registering to vote!
The Electoral Commission says that about 9.4million people in the UK are not properly registered to vote. Many of these will be people with a learning disability. People with a learning disability need to have a say in the General Election.
Whoever wins this election will control their benefits, their housing, their social care services and their health services for the next 5 years.
We have created some Easy Read information which explains how to register to vote. It will help people with a learning disability, their carers and support workers to make sure people are properly registered and can take part!
