Abstract

There are 1.5 million people in the UK with a learning disability, and while people with a learning disability have the right to vote, less than 20 per cent voted in the general election in 2005. Mencap is a leading UK charity that works in partnership with people with a learning disabilities. Policy and Campaigns Officer Mark Gale looks at Mencap’s ‘Get my vote’ campaign launched earlier this year with the aim of helping to enable those with learning disabilities to have the opportunity to vote.
