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

I had to go to choir practice. I figured my choir of 24 people needed my contibution more than the Lib Dems needed me (I live in a consituency in the heart of Tory Sussex where Francis Maude has a 27zillionthousand majority). Feel bad about not voting - but our musical director would have been very unhappy with me.

scared replies: I wish! I was in London the night before, I work in London and my choir rehearses in the evening in London. Could not get back to my remote village to vote as would have had to leave choir 10 mins into rehearsal to make it for 10pm. And did I mention the reason I was in London the night before? Well, I planned to stay the night in London as I was worried about Madrid-style train bombings on the morning of the election, so I got a hotel near where we work. So I guess I should blame Bliar for my failure to vote after all :-)

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.
