Accessible ballot paper

During an election, a List of candidates are on this page to assist partially-sighted or blind voters that may use a tactile voting device at the polling station.

The row numbers used in the list of candidates below match the braille rows on the tactile voting device which polling station staff can place on the ballot paper for you.  

Each row of the tactile voting device has a flap which can be lifted. Underneath the flap is the box where you need to mark the ballot paper for voting.

Vote for only one candidate by putting a cross in the box next to your choice.


After marking your ballot paper the polling station staff can guide you to the ballot box.  

Your ballot paper must be put in to the ballot box for it to be counted.
