Not Apathetic

Tell the world why you're not voting - don't let your silence go unheard

They're not voting because...

Because I'm only 17. Although I can ...

Because I'm only 17. Although I can have sex, get married and drive, I'm not allowed to vote.

Jack replies: What!!! You are having sex? Stop it immediately!

In my ideal state no-one should have sex before the age of 37, be allowed to marry without a 25 year engagement or be allowed to drive until just before the moment of death.

But... people should be allowed to vote at age 5. It would make as much sense as the current system.

About Not Apathetic

NotApathetic was built so that people who are planning not to vote in the UK General Election on May 5th can tell the world why. We won't try to persuade you that voting is a good or a bad idea - we're just here to record and share your explanations. Whether ideological, practical or other, any reason will do.

A lot of users would like us to mention that if you spoil your ballot paper, it will be counted. So if you want to record a vote for "none of the above", you can.
