Mencap supporter guide to the General Election

Written by MencapDate 22 May 2017

Whether you’re a family carer, support worker or friend, these resources will help you start a conversation about why it’s important to vote, talk about the process as well as cover the big issues.

It has a section on why it is important to vote, FAQs as well as flash cards to help talk through how Parliament works and the voting process itself. Don’t worry you don’t have to be political yourself or know anything about Parliament!

We have also produced an easy read guide for people with a learning disability themselves. This uses jargon free language and images and works together with these resources. It has been produced in partnership with the Electoral Commission and is available to download on the Mencap website.
