Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

Why should I vote? None of the parties...

Why should I vote? None of the parties running in the election have policies I support, and every year us non apathetic intelligent politically literate types get whitewashed by the media and the government as "not knowing enough about politics to vote". Abstaining is the only option until a "none of the above" box is added to the voting slip.

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.
