United Response believes that everyone should be able to vote.

Many people with learning disabilities are not using their legal right to do so.

Since 2010, we have campaigned to make politics easier to understand for the 1.5 million people with learning disabilities in the UK.

Our Every Vote Counts campaign gives people with learning disabilities and their supporters accessible information about the democratic process, so that they can make an informed choice when they vote.

People with learning disabilities have the same right to vote as everyone else, but are hugely under-represented at the ballot box. We are helping people learn about their rights, and how to overcome barriers to voting. 

Go to the Every Vote Counts website.

Accessible information about voting and politics

Our free, unbiased, and easy-to-understand website and booklets aim to make politics and voting more accessible.

The easy read booklets and website have simple words and helpful images to explain how politics affects the daily lives of disabled people.

These resources explain the political system, how to register, and different ways you can vote. They also include detailed information for carers and politicians.
