Pembrokeshire Supported Employment Programme make voting easy in new video

A new video has been created in partnership with Pembrokeshire Supported Employment Programme (PSEP) to illustrate how accessible voting can be for all.

Pembrokeshire County Council Electoral Services has been working hard to ensure that everyone who wants to vote has access to all the information they need to do so, whether that be via postal vote or in person at a polling station.

The skills of film graduate Aeran Hopewell, currently working with the PSEP, were put to good use as they shot and edited the video featuring colleagues Kath Brookes and James Pugh, along with Electoral Services and Communications team members.

The video provides a run through of how to vote, including the need for photo ID in some elections, and aims to reassure anyone who has concerns about voting at a polling station.

It demonstrates that the process is straightforward and that there are always people on hand to assist when needed.

It will be available to watch on the Council’s YouTube as well as being shared among support, community and access groups around Pembrokeshire and with other Local Authority partners.

Member Champion for people with learning disabilities at Pembrokeshire County Council Cllr Alistair Cameron said: “It is vital to address the barriers some face when it comes to voting in person and this excellent film, created with the input of those people we hope will benefit, goes some way to reassuring everyone that there is always help on hand.”

Returning Officer Will Bramble added: “The upcoming Police and Crime Commissioner election is the first time registered voters in Wales will need to show photo ID so it is fantastic to see this video explaining the process and it will hopefully encourage more people to head to their polling stations.”
