Accessibility in the General Election 2020

As a person with a disability we want to hear about your experiences of voting in the General Election 2020.  Please only complete this survey if you have voted. This includes people with disabilities who voted by postal vote. It should only take you 5 minutes to complete and is anonymous.

The survey has been put together by Maria Ní Fhlatharta and Vivian Rath, two disabled people, to gauge disabled people’s experiences of voting.  They will analyse and publish the results to better facilitate activists and Disabled Persons Organisations to advocate on this issue.

If you need support in filling out the form or have questions please email or tweet @RathVivian

This short survey is only intended to give us an idea of what the barriers are and is not a comprehensive study.

For the purposes of this survey we have taken the definition of disability as defined by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities:  “Persons with disabilities include those who have long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments which in interaction with various barriers may hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others,” (UNCRPD, 2006).

The survey can be accessed here.

An east to read version of the survey is available here.
