Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

No-one in my local area has canvassed...

No-one in my local area has canvassed me - no signs, no flyers through the door (I've been off sick so they can't even say they called during the day).

It's a bit clear cut in my constituency but that's not a good enough reason for me. I don't know what parties are standing or even their names.

It's a week to go.

I will be turning up but will be spoiling my vote paper.

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.
