Helping disabled people vote

In Pitstone, our Polling Station is the Memorial Hall.  The Memorial Hall Charity has invested heavily over the last few years to improve their disabled provision including access ramps to all external doors, lower viewing panels for doors, dedicated toilet provision and a microphone system in the main hall.   If you have any comments regarding disabled provision at the hall, perhaps you could let us know.   Some other places may not be as fortunate and BuDS is running a survey to try and identify problems so solutions can be found.   BuDS is helping to make sure that all disabled people in Buckinghamshire are able to vote as easily as everyone else, by conducting a short and anonymous survey about barriers faced by disabled people to voting.  The survey is at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2KYXRTL.  All results will be fed back to the appropriate District Council to help them improve how they run future elections in Bucks.  BuDS will also follow up any complaints or comments about individual polling stations or officials highlighted in the survey.   Sent on behalf of   Andrew Clark | Chair of Trustees Bucks Disability Service (BuDS) www.buds.org.uk The Clare Charity Centre, Wycombe Road, Saunderton, Bucks HP14 4BF General Enquiries: 01494 568864 | Personal phone: 07811 142935
