Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

There isn't a party that adequate...

There isn't a party that adequate represents my views, or who I feel confident that I could trust, or has the requisite leadership experience. It seems wrong to vote for someone, or a party, I'm not whole heartedly in support of, yet I also feel that I lose my right to complain about what and who we get if I haven't voted. I wish there was an option of none of the above, with the assurance that the parties would not be allowed to run again if that was what the majority voted for. I'm far from politically apathetic.

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.
