Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

It's on the way to the pub so I'll pop in, pick up my ballot paper, draw my own square and write "NONE OF THE ABOVE" next to it. Then I can draw my X.

Jon replies: Good for you, it always gives us a good laugh at the count when people actually vent their anger on a ballot slip. My fave was "There all w*****s!"

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.
