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.
