Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

Im not voting for the sake of it when I dont belive in any of them!

I find nothing I can relate to in our polotics all the partys are basically the same and theres only 3 that have a chance of winning anyway, im not going to give my vote to someone I dont belive in just for the sake of it id rather give my vote to noone!

I tell you one thing though im fed up with being told oh if you cant vote you dont have the right to a say!...yes you do just becasue I dont belive if any of the parties around at the moment doesnt mean I dont have a right to say how I live my life y`know? im fed up of being made to feel guilty for not voting by people and all these ads etc.

As I said before ill vote for someone when someone I belive in is standing for election im not going to give my vote out for the sake of it just becasue ive got one! and at the moment I dont belive in any of the candidates standing so im not going to give any of them my vote. simple!

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.
