A visually impaired man has found himself the victim of discrimination when he asked his local authority if he could vote at the General Election on June 8th in the same way that everyone else can.
When Daniel Williams, 25, enquired at Cardiff City Council, if he could have a large print ballot paper, he was informed that this was not possible due to ‘legislative reasons’. No alternative was suggested.
Mr Williams was then told by the Electoral Commission that there would be ‘an example’ in a large print format at the polling station ‘for reference only’. He would still have to place his cross on an original size ballot paper.
