Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I want my vote to have a real effect...

I want my vote to have a real effect. I am witholding my vote because I don't want to legitimise an illegitimate system.At present we are only choosing between the same type of rule. The political parties all favour the continued rule of big business and global corporations. In my view the majority should have the power. What we have is "McPolitics" running the country.

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.
