RNIB would like Visionary members and partners to share with their services users an invitation to take part in an Accessible Voting Trial on 25 September 2023.

The trial will take place from 1pm – 5pm at The Grimaldi Building, RNIB’s new London office.

Participants will be testing a range of accessible voting options that could improve the voting experience for other blind and partially sighted people at polling stations.

The trial is supported by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities and the Electoral Commission. Its findings will inform the Electoral Commission 2024 Guidance for Returning Officers.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided, and travel expenses will be covered.

Anyone interested in taking part in the trial, should email campaigns@rnib.org.uk or call RNIB’s Helpline on 0303 123 9999 and ask them to pass on your contact information to the campaigns mailbox.
