People with a learning disability have as much right to vote as anyone else.
To be able to vote you must register to vote.
When you vote in a general election you vote for someone to locally represent you in the house of commons. This person is called a Member of Parliament (MP)
They make important decisions that can affect people’s lives and by taking part in voting it is the best way for you to support who will represent your views in parliament and bring up issues that you care about. It is one of the chances to have a voice over how the country is run.
Voting enables you to help decide who represents your local area in parliament. MP’s aren’t just responsible for national policy. It’s also their job to raise local issues and support you as much as they can. You can go to them and ask for advice on certain issues or ask them to promote an issue in parliament.
