Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

People who voted need not bother commenting...

People who voted need not bother commenting here, and can instead and more appropriately go to the "I voted for you Because" site.

(a) some people vote and don't know what they are doing (pathetic)

(b) some people don't vote because they don't know what they are doing, or don't care (apathetic)

(c) some people vote based upon careful consideration and a good understanding of what is going on. (target voter)

(c) some people don't vote even though they know what they are doing, and have a good understanding of what is going on. Having given the matter careful consideration, they feel they cannot in good conscience endorse this process or back the present system.

This site is for those who are not/ did not vote, so that's (a) and (c) scored out.

This site is called NOT -- therefore (b) is struck-off....

Leaving (c).

Read (c) again, and stop coming to this site holding the wrong end of the stick!

dcd replies: It just goes to show that if people can come to this site and either beg us to vote or state that they voted, then can they be trusted to vote at all?

They cannot seem to understand how simple things work, they cannot follow the instructions on the tin.

... and we give them the freedom to dawdle along to the polling station -- no doubt to pick a candidate on an equally fallacious basis!

Good Grief! *rolls eyes*

Which is good really. It just goes to show how healthy and mixed peoples views are. I have read a few and some have gone into football and cheese! Amazing eh.

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.
