Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I'm not voting for anyone who acts like...

I'm not voting for anyone who acts like a spoilt five-year-old. You heard of pester power, right? That's all they're doing to us. All you have to do is say unequivocally: "NO! You're not getting any sweeties at the checkout!" (or equally) "NO! You're not getting my vote you puerile, egomaniacal playground bullies!" and give them a firm smack on the bum. Oh, except you're not allowed to do that anymore are you? Hmm... there's a kid stealing my stereo to buy drugs, I wonder why...?

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.
