Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I haven't been registered even though...

I haven't been registered even though I handed my registration form in on time!

This is SO bloody annoying. I handed my registration form in at York council on the deadline at EXACTLY the same time as a friend did. I didn't realize, being new to the area that my actual office was in Easingwold. My friend also is based in Easingwold.

Anyway... their form got forwarded and they've had their voting card, mine didn't and I haven't. I have called both offices and they both blame each other.

I am not apathetic, far from it... I am ripped off

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.
