On Thursday 7 May 2015 there is a general election across the whole of the UK. If you are over 18 and have registered to vote you can have your say and vote in the general election.
Manifestos tell you what a political party believes in and what they say they would do if they won the election. We hope that “Easy Read” manifestos will be produced by all the main political parties to help people with a learning disability decide who to vote for.
But so far we have full manifestos from
the Lib Dems
The SNP is due next week and you will be able to read it when available by clicking here.
The Labour Party have also published their 5 main pledges in Easy Read form. You can read these and they will help you make up your mind who to vote for:
But they can still be quite long and take time to read. So we have produced an Easy Read guide to the policies of the main parties in Scotland. This gives the 10 main policies of each party in easy read and puts them all on a single page for each party. Read It Here.
The Learning Disability Alliance Scotland are using these as part of their popular General Election workshops (see picture).
