Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

Because politics/politicians are corrupt...

Because politics/politicians are corrupt, mindless simpletons, who are not capable of even answering a question with an honest answer, let alone the fact that they ARE capable of leading the country I live in into an illegal war. I refuse to accept the 'best of a bad bunch' option, as I am not prepared to give my vote to someone who will then be capable of putting their grubby little hands directly into my wallet, on the basis that they are 'not as bad as the rest'. Party politics has failed. It is unrepresentative and unfair to believe that 3 parties can adequately provide policies for the entire nation. DO NOT VOTE, IT ONLY ENCOURAGES THEM!

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.
