AEC releases voting information for people with disability

The Federal Election has been called for 18 May and the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) has developed a range of resources to support people with disability through the electoral process. NDS encourages its members to share this information with people with disability and their families.

Easy Read Guides are available on the AEC website and include information on how to enrol and vote, how to vote at a polling place and how to vote via mail.

A series of videos have been developed by AEC and you can watch them via YouTube as below:
