Pirkko Mahlamäki, Finnish Disability Forum

“I vote every time and for every election: 10 – 12 elections until now, local, national and European. One of the main problems I have is with the secrecy of vote. In one of my first-time voting, the booth screen was too high – I could ride my chair to the booth, but everyone could see whom I voted for. I made a suggestion for a more accessible booth, and the next time they had a better booth. But problems persist until today!”
