safe seat replies: Yes of course, but I think u are missing the point I am trying to make - the change needs to come from the other parties TO MAKE people go and switch votes

Caesar replies: Its true, in safe seats politicans do less campaigning. Overall though, that doesn't quantify not voting IMHO (In my honest opinion).

Jax replies: And why do you think it's a safe seat?
Because all the people like yourself don't bother voting because they think it's a safe seat.
Previous election results almost dictate future election results in this way.

Register your voting intentions for future voters to consider.

safe seat replies: I did vote, of course.

As did my partner, it was a tactical vote to try and swing it, and with this turnout there is a chance cross fingers.

I was making a point.

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.
