Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

My background and my family up-bringing...

My background and my family up-bringing tell me I should vote Labour. The area I live in 'has always voted Labour', it feels wrong to vote Conservative but the country is falling into ruin under the current government.

I feel that if Conservative got in they wouldn't make things better, but, could they really do much worse than Labour. I think I'd be happier with Labour if TB was replaced. I'm so confused it's easier not to vote. Perhaps I am apathetic.

Rich replies: Never ask vote for someone under the excuse of 'could they do much worse than our current government?'

Mainly because yes, they can always do worse.

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.
