I gave up voting many years ago when i found out that the vote was no longer secret your ref no is printed on your voting slip, so that you can be identified. The official reason given is that you may write abusive comments on the slip. It is obvious that the real reason is so that the security services can identify all those who vote for the very small weird and wonderful parties that may attract the extremists.

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.
