Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I fully appreciate that people have ...

I fully appreciate that people have reasons, numerous and valid, for not wanting to vote. If you are one of these people, please go and deface your ballot slip. Write "none of the above" and tick it. Scrawl "politics is corrupt" if that's your opinion, or "Socialism 4 eva!" if you're that way inclined, right across the page. Rip up your ballot and let people know that you're freely choosing not to pick a party, and aren't just an apathetic layabout.

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.
