Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

because I'm not on the electoral roll...

because I'm not on the electoral roll. I'm not on the electoral roll because council's and other orgs use it to for reasons other than the right to vote.

Voting should be made compulsory imo with the positive option of None Of the Above available, (this is better than spoiling your ballot as there can be no mistaking the positive statement: A plague on all your houses.)

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.
