It is not possible to monitor the number of people with a learning disability who (a) register to vote and (b) vote in the forthcoming election as no record is made of disability when registering to vote or when voting.

The Cabinet Office is funding Mencap to increase the representation of people with learning disabilities on the electoral register. This includes engagement activity highlighting to disabled people why they should register to vote and how to do so.

Does this answer the above question?
