They're not voting because...
- I'm not old enough...
I'm not old enough to vote but please will people considering not voting spoil the paper instead. This gives a message that your not voting out of choice rather than giving out the message that Britain is a lazy apathetic country. Spoiling your paper isn't choosing not to vote, its saying that there is no choice on the ballot that you wish to vote for. Please consider writing none of the above all over your paper rather than sitting at home and becoming another statistic that reflects badly on our country.written 7th Apr 2005

Not voting at all shows nothing to anyone.
A huge turnout of 'None of the above' would give Peter Snow and his swing-o-meter something to talk about!
nayan ashra replies: As another under age non-voter, I agree very strongly with this view, it definately sends out the message that politicians need to hear, imagine if more than 10% of ballot papers were spoiled.written 12th Apr 2005
