Q & A

About #carevote

Q1. What kind of action is "#carevote"?

A. This is an action that visualizes the challenges of voting for people with intellectual disabilities and think about the creation of an environment that is more important not only for those with intellectual disabilities and their families, but also for those who want to go widely. 。

Q2. Why did you start "#carevote"?

A. People with intellectual disabilities*1For those who can participate in politics through the exercise of voting rights, human dignity is the right to protect human dignity and can speak as one of the sovereign in this country, and at the same time, life itself is more likely to be affected by politics. In that sense, it is a very important right. In May 2022, the "Information Accessibility Communication Measures Promotion Law" was implemented to promote information by people with disabilities, and promote measures related to communication.(*2)
So, Heral Bonnie(*3)In conjunction with the Upper House election in July 2022, we expect that the social barriers in elections and voting will be in the opportunity to discuss and discuss, and as part of that, as part of the "#Carevote" and "Easy Voting Guide". We decided to create and disclose it.
In addition, the thoughts of Heral Bonnie regarding this actionBecause it is also spelled out in notePlease read that together.

According to a survey by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, the three categories of physical disorders, intellectual disabilities, and mental disorders
The total number of persons with disabilities in each category is the person with the physically disabled (including children with physical disabilities; the same hereinafter).
4.36 million people with intellectual disabilities (including children with intellectual disabilities; the same hereinafter), 1,082,000, and 4,193,000 mentally ill.

See: Cabinet Office "Status of Disabled Person with Disabilities" (2019)

Cabinet Office "Promotion of measures related to acquiring information by persons with disabilities and communicating" (2022)
In Heral Bonnie, " # The word" the word "(2019), etc.
We have been taking actions to visualize prejudice and prejudice surrounding persons with disabilities.

See: Welfare experimental unit Heral Bonnie, which lists "Unusual, Release" in the mission, has developed the brand's first opinion advertisement "The word" disabled person "(2020)

Q3. Who is "#carevote" for?

A.This is an action for each person to think about voting opportunities.
Some people with intellectual disabilities are difficult to receive information on elections and vote from various barriers on society and the environment.
Through "#carevote", such barriers are not overlooked, and each and every one thinks and raises their voices, not only those who have intellectual disabilities, but everyone is a universal human being. I believe that it will lead to the realization of a society that respects value.

Q4. What does it mean to have a vote you want to take care?

A. The message "I have a vote I want to take care" has various thoughts.
The first thing I want to convey is the vote of people with intellectual disabilities and their families.
Even if you want to participate in the election, you will know that there are difficult circumstances for various reasons, and we want to change the current situation.
In addition, through this message, not only those with intellectual disabilities, but each of us, access to voting opportunities, time, location, and economic constraints such as work, home environment, and information on elections. We hope that you will be able to realize that it is affected by society and the environment, such as the difficulty and difficulty of understanding.

Q5. How do I participate in "#CareVote"?

A. How to participate will be left to you.
The people around you introduced the "gentle voting guide" we produced,
Along with the hashtag "#carevote", I am very happy to just tweet questions and suggestions about the right to vote and voting opportunities.

About a gentle voting guide

Q6. What is a "easy voting guide"?

A.A guide that summarizes useful information created as part of the action "#carevote" when a person with intellectual disabilities wants to go to a voting. Mainly, it was created to assist people with intellectual disabilities and their families for voting information and environment.
On the left side is preparation information for voting such as "you do not have to write letters" or "you may bring a note", on the right side, "Please write instead" and "Please explain in an easy -to -understand manner". It describes a communication board that is useful when you are in trouble.
In addition, the Slow Communication is supervised by a general incorporated association, which has a large number of practical examples and expressions that are easy to understand for people with intellectual disabilities.

Q7. Can I take the "Easy Voting Guide" to the polling place?

A.Regarding the contents of the "Easy Voting Guide" and the availability of bringing it to the polling place, we have confirmed in advance with the Iwate Prefecture Election Committee, where the Heral Bonnie headquarters is located, and have responded that there is no problem. Since the response may be different in the polling place, please contact the election management committee in your constituency by phone or at the reception of the polling place for the voting method and information provision method at each polling place. Please check.

Q8. Isn't there an issue that can't be taken care of with the "Easy Voting Guide" alone?

A. We do not expect that all the tasks can solve all the tasks with a "gentle voting guide".
What is the protection of the dignity of a person with severe intellectual disabilities, which is difficult to use a "gentle voting guide", and the right to be able to speak as one of the sovereigns in this country. Is there a way to do so, at the same time, what kind of improvement is needed to remove the various barriers on the side of the voting, which is limited to the presence or absence of intellectual disabilities. Regarding whether it is, under the philosophy of "#Carevote", we will continue to consider what we can do and work on it.
Furthermore, I hope that ideas will be born not only to individuals, but also from companies and various corporations.

About people with intellectual disabilities and elections

Q9. Can people with intellectual disabilities vote correctly?

A. There is no correct answer in the voting.
What kind of information, how to think, what candidates, and which political parties to vote.
They are freedom to be recognized by each of us, regardless of the disability.Even those with intellectual disabilities are not good at communication, they will be willing to each other.
If you think a little bit about what is important for our society and the environment, and if you put a vote as a means to express yourself that you are here, it will be your will. We think it can be said that we have shown it.

Q10. I'm worried that the voting of a person with intellectual disabilities will not be used for illegal voting.

A. Of course, elections need to be held fairly.
That's why the barriers on the side of the voting society and the environment have not overlookedRather, not only people with intellectual disabilities, but also those with intellectual disabilities by thinking about the design of a fair and open election place, including voting for people with intellectual disabilities. It may lead to the realization of a society that respects the universal value of human beings (as an example of our society continued to improve universal value, for example, for example. In the past, the "adult guardian" ("A person who has been judged by the family court for lack of judgment due to mental disability". See Article 8 of the Civil Code). However, in response to the unconstitutional ruling of the Tokyo District Court in 2013 and the voices of related organizations, some of the House of Representatives and the House of Councilors were unanimously amended, and votes by adult guardians could be voted. became).

Q11. How do you use the notation of "disability"?

A.In Heral Bonnie, there are a variety of values ​​about the word "disability", assuming that there is no intention to deny each idea, "obstacles" are associated with individual mental and physical functions on the side of society and the environment. From the viewpoint of "disability" that occurs, it is unified in the expression "disability" and the expression "not" (individual) disability "). I am using it.
