Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

because the political party that I believe...

because the political party that I believe in took less than 10% of the vote in my local seat so either my vote is a wasted protest vote, or I vote for someone I don't belive in. Just because i can not affect the oputcome of my local seat why should my views not count nationally?

Tom Harris replies: Because voteing is about more than just numbers. It's about showing respect for the men and women who have died for democracy. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Gavin replies: Who are these people exactly, Tom?

And do people have to give up their rights and freedom in "respect" of others who died for their rights and freedom?

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.
