Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister and leader of the Liberal Democrats, endorses our Every Vote Counts campaign and discusses Liberal Democrat policy on disability.

Every Vote Counts, our campaign to make democratic information accessible ahead of the General Election, has the support of all five of the main UK political parties - the Conservatives, Greens, Labour, Liberals and UKIP – and United Response has been in touch with the offices of each of the party leaders to ask for a brief video interview.

We’re asking each leader whether more people with learning disabilities should take part in the democratic process, as well as what their party is doing to help disabled people.

The Deputy Prime Minister gives a ringing endorsement

We caught up with him on the campaign trail to get his views on the importance of accessible voting.

He said: “I’m a big supporter of the Every Vote Counts initiative by United Response. Everybody in our country should have the right to vote and participate in elections.”
