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

The current political system has clearly gone wrong somewhere: The little "choice" we have is between 2 (or three, they're all the same regardless) exceptionally right wing parties. No matter who I vote for, a load of dishonest politicians who are working on "spin", and big business will get in. Its not a clash of values and ideology, its a clash on who can best benefit the rich and powerful. Thats not the people ruling themselves. Democracy? Not a chance.

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.
