My Vote My Voice: Understand your voting rights and register to vote

14 Jun 24

On Thursday 4 July, there will be a general election to decide who will be the next government in the UK. To vote, you must be on the electoral register by 11:59pm on 18 June 2024.

You may think that because someone has dementia, learning disabilities or is an inpatient in a mental health facility that they are unable to vote. Often, this is not the case. In fact, most of our service users can vote and we encourage them to use this opportunity to get their voices heard and vote for what matters to them.

To find out more, please visit our webpage where you will find information about voting rights, how to register and easy-read guides on voting: https://www.hpft.nhs.uk/service-users/voting-rights/

My Vote My Voice is an organisation aiming to encourage people with learning disabilities and autistic people to vote in the 2024 General Election, by providing accessible resources and championing the voting rights of people with learning disabilities and autism.
