Lori Carnochan went to meet the team behind Carlisle MENCAP's new film, which encourages people with disabilities to vote.
Carlisle MENCAP hope their new film will inspire people with learning disabilities to vote.
And the filmmaking process itself was worthwhile, according to those who put the video together.
Hear Our Voice is a national campaign by MENCAP, aimed at giving people with disabilities a voice in the run up to the General Election.
The aim is to make sure that learning disabilities are firmly on the agenda of all political parties.
There are 1.4 million people across the UK who have a learning disability and they want their issues to be heard by local and national politicians.
Today was the launch of a film they've produced, which you can watch here.
A film made in Cumbria to encourage disabled people to vote will be distributed across the UK.
500 copies will be sent to disabled people and groups ahead of May's general election.
That's because the quality of the film, and message behind it, have been approved by the Cabinet Office, which has agreed to fund it.
The film called "Voting - hear my voice" was made at Carlisle's MENCAP centre.
