There are different local elections taking place on Thursday 6 May.

We believe voting and elections should be accessible to everyone.

That’s why we worked with the Electoral Commission and the Cabinet Office to create easy read guides and practice ballot papers for each of the different elections.

The guides include a practice voting slip and use simple language and images to help explain the voting process in easy-to-follow steps.

They also outline what each election is for and how local politics can play a huge part in people’s everyday lives.
