Accessibility at polling stations

We strive to ensure that polling stations in Sheffield are accessible and wherever possible we use venues with level or ramped access. The following assistive equipment will be provided at every polling station:

  • Seating, in case you need to rest or cannot stand for long periods
  • Text magnifier
  • Pencil grips
  • Tactile voting device for marking your vote if you have a visual impairment
  • Large print sample ballot paper
  • Large print / easy read notices
  • Polling booth at wheelchair level

If you have a need for assistive equipment that is not on this list, you can contact us to request it and we will decide whether we can provide it.

You can take your phone into the polling booth to use magnifier or text-to-speech apps, or use your own equipment such as your preferred magnifier. When using your phone, do not take any photos inside the polling station. You can also take your own pen or pencil into the polling booth to mark your vote if you wish.

You can also take someone with you to help you with the voting process. Let the staff know that you want your helper to assist you and they will be able to accompany you into the polling booth. They must be aged 18 or over and will need to complete a form.
