Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

None of the above

None of the above.....

I find the current batch of politicians lacking in imagination, intellect and integrity. Any vote cast will be taken by a politician as a positive endorsement. The absence of a vote, unfortunately, is almost always taken as evidence of apathy.

My preference would be to be able to register my dislike of most politicians with a "None of the above" option on the ballot paper.

In this way I could not be accused of apathy and be able to register my disappointment with conventioanl politics in a postive manner.

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.
