Tue, 12 Jan 2016


Disabilities should never affect a candidate's ability to stand as an MHK or a person's right to vote.

It'll include things like ensuring parents and the disabled aren't intimidated by dangers involved in attending polling stations.

John Shimmin is hoping measures can be put in place before this year's General Election:
