Democracy

Access to democracy, including a truly secret vote in national and local elections and access to proper information on which to make an informed choice.

Who did you really vote for?

OK so we had a general election on Saturday and now the country pretty much knows where it's going for the next three years. But did it ever occur to you just how crucial it is to our electoral system that your vote is secret? Well maybe your vote isn't absolutely secret because the system still needs to know enough to validate the votes cast but we don't need to go into that much detail right now.

Suppose you are part of a family that really holds strong left or right wing views. But deep down you really feel that you're not going to vote for the same party the rest of your family supports. You can keep this entirely to yourself. Nobody will know how you actually voted.

That is not the case for blind and vision impaired people.
