Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

The Labour party in my constituency ...

The Labour party in my constituency have a massive majority. So large in fact that I haven't seen or heard anything from my local candidates. No posters, no leaflet drops, nothing.

In the local council elections the Conservatives and Lib Dems don't even put up any candidates. It almost feels like living in Zimbabwe (Iraq, USSR, etc.), where you can vote as long as it's for the only candidate standing.

We do, however, have a BNP candidate! So this is a time when I really would like to have a "none of the above" option.

I will go to the polling station and vote for the Lib Dem Candidate for the general election, he deserves to keep his deposit at least.

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.
