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

They're not voting because...

My enrolment card reached the electoral officer too late - more than a month BEFORE polling day & before the election was called!! So I can't vote in this election, despite the fact that I want to - not a happy bunny.

sc replies: yeah it's a bit ridiculous that the deadline to register was before the election was even called, that shouldn't even be legal.

john replies: This is precisely why OUR electoral registration officer sent out letters about three months ago suggesting that a general election was a distinct possibility we ought to make sure we were on the list (!)

Shame your officer didn't do the same.

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.
