the electoral system is such that my vote would have little effect in denting a large Tory majority. Even if I were in a three-way marginal, my choice would be between rotten, more rotten and hopeless. Most countries in Europe (including Scotland and Wales) have stable PR systems which avoid a government getting over 60% of the seats on 40% of the vote.

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.
