Accessibility at elections

Everyone should be able to register and cast their vote without facing barriers. A new law, the Elections Act 2022, sets out extra support which we must provide, if you have a disability or accessibility need. This includes bringing another person to the polling station for support. More information on accessibility at polling stations.

If you would like extra help with voting or registering to vote, you can contact our Elections Team on 01354 654321 (open Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm, and Saturdays, 9am to 12noon) or email: elections@fenland.gov.uk
