Scope's research at the last election, found that only 12 per cent of polling stations were fully accessible for disabled people. This is an outrage. Scope calls on all parties to ensure that improvements are made this year to polling stations, access to public meetings and election materials.
If all 6.5 million disabled people in this country were able to exercise their democratic rights, we might see a real change in the country's political agenda.
