Ways of voting

4. Facilities for voters with disabilities

All our polling stations in Stockport have a range of facilities to support voters with disabilities. Each polling station has disabled access for wheelchair users as well as low level polling booths.

Large print ballot papers are available at the polling stations to assist those with visual impairments. Each station also has access to a tactile voting device to assist electors who can read braille.

There are trained staff at each of our polling stations to provide additional support to anybody who needs it. Electors are also welcome to bring a colleague, friend or support worker to assist them whilst voting.

You can request a postal vote if you would prefer to vote in the comfort of your own home. More information about this can be found in the vote by post section on this page.

If you require assistance with completing the application form, contact electoral services.

View the easy read guide to voting on the GOV.UK website. It contains information on voting for people with learning disabilities.

We’re committed to providing voting facilities for all electors and we’re working in conjunction with Disability Stockport to do so. If you have any suggestions on how we can improve our service, contact us at elections.office@stockport.gov.uk.
