Help with voting

The Electoral Commission has produced an easy-to-use guide for people with learning disabilities.

Focusing on the Scottish Parliament and local government elections on May 3, the guide uses pictures and simple text to explain how to vote - and why it's important to vote.

For the local government election, voters will rank candidates in order of preference using numbers (1, 2, 3, 4 and so on). For the Scottish Parliamentary elections, voters will need to use an X to mark choices for constituency and region.

Copies of the booklet can be obtained direct from the Electoral Commission T 0845 8500 501; E infoscotland@electoralcommission.org.uk; www.aboutmyvote.co.uk
