Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

i was expecting to get a postal vote...

i was expecting to get a postal vote because i filled a form in months ago saying that i wanted postal votes in the future, but for some reason they didn't get the form, or it wasn't the right form so now i've got no postal vote and can't get to the polling station on thursday because i'll be overseas. i'm pretty cross about not being able to vote because i think we all should, even if there's no one to vote for and we spoil the paper, at least we get counted in, and theoretically if enough people spoil the papers they'll have to do it all again. wouldn't that be fun?!!

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.
