Voting Passport

A voting passport is an A4 sheet of paper to hand to polling staff so they easily can understand the reasonable adjustments needed to enable the person to vote.

The voting passport also allows voters to write who they would like support from, their supporter’s name and whether the supporter is eligible to vote in the UK or not. If the supporter is not eligible to vote in the UK then they will need to work with the presiding officer to support the person to vote.

The back of the voting passport contains information on the law in order to debunk the myth a person can be prevented from voting on the grounds of a lack of mental capacity.

It’s important to know that the polling station and presiding officer have to make these reasonable adjustments by law. People voting and those supporting them have every right to ask for them and should stand firm if anyone says otherwise.

The Democracy Box Toolkit

This ‘story’ contains the basics which we think every citizen needs to know to fully participate in our UK democracy. Our UK democracy needs all citizens to be informed and actively encouraged to get involved, and know that it is their democratic right to challenge, question, protest, shape, critique, debate and influence our democracy all year round and not just at the ballot box.

Legal Advice

How election law might affect your organisation

This article outlines what election law means for campaigning during an election period.

Whilst an election year is a period of opportunity, it also carries some legal compliance considerations. For example, some organisations might be restricted in the way they can operate by their internal policies, constitution or legal form.

Legal Advice

Charities and campaigning ahead of a general election

This article provides information on rules and regulations surrounding charity campaigning during elections.

The vast majority of charities can campaign and engage in policy advocacy in the run up to elections, making the most of the opportunity that a pre-election period presents for furthering a charity’s purposes through policy and political work.

Provided that your governing document does not expressly restrict your charity from engaging in political activity (this is rare, but may be relevant in some cases, such as the terms of some charitable trusts), then charities can engage in advocacy and campaigning – your charity’s trustees just need to be aware of a few key limitations and regulatory regimes to navigate.
Legal Advice

Publishing advocacy materials or political statements

This article covers key issues to look out for when publishing advocacy materials or political statements ahead of a general election.

Many of these issues will apply regardless of whether there is an election coming, but of course public activity may be more likely to be scrutinised in the sensitive pre-election period. Topics covered are spending limits on 'regulated' content, transparency requirements, intellectual property, and many others relevant to your work when advocating.
Legal Advice

New transparency requirements (‘imprints’) ahead of elections

This article outlines rules regarding 'imprints' and transparency when publishing advocacy and campaigning content.

The article is written in coordination with the Electoral Commission, who have set out the key requirements of the 'imprint' regime, along with how your organisation could be affected.
