They're not voting because...
- I have no faith in the political system...
I have no faith in the political system. There should be a "None of the above" option. THEN I would go out and vote.written 23rd Apr 2005
AJ replies: If you want a 'none of the above' option then go to your polling station and put a big cross over your ballot paper. That way you haven't just been apathetic, you've made the effort to go out there and register your lack of faith in the system. If you just don't go out and vote at all, you'll be assumed to be one of the 'apathetic' citizens who just can't be bothered.written 23rd Apr 2005
Hugh Jones replies: Yeah exactly. Seriously, if you want a "none of the above" option, you add that yourself. It's easy. Add an extra box, label it "none of the above" and put a cross in it.
Like the person says, if you don't vote they'll think you're apathetic and you don't care.
It's no good sitting around waiting for the authorities to change things. You've got to DO IT YOURSELF. Take direct action and add the "none of the above" option yourself.written 23rd Apr 2005
