Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

Many reasons...

Many reasons:

a)I don't know enough about politics to make an informed decision.
b)Tony Blair is a tw*t, Michael Howard is a gimp and Charles Kennedy, the only one of the three who is remotely worthy of my vote, does not seem 'leader' material.

Anna - I live in an extremely 'safe seat' so Green will never get in. In addition, I'm not even sure that there is a Green candidate in my constituency. Even though the election is nigh, there doesn't seem to be any election literature coming through my letterbox. Again, probably because I live in a safe seat.

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.
