Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I would like to vote for somebody who...

I would like to vote for somebody who will represent my area, and the specific needs of that area. MPs are told to follow the party line too often, and do not represent those in their constituency.

So we are voting for the Party and the new Prime Minister rather than our local candidate. Personally I do not agree with any of the parties' manifestos in entirity - I do not believe that Howard or Kennedy will make good leaders, and I think Blair is past his prime and is too deeply entrenched.

So who do I vote for? I won't be voting because I do not believe there is somebody suitable to vote for.

Graham Price replies: You could try voting Lib Dem, because they're the only party who really believe in electoral reform (probably because they stand to gain the most from it!)

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.
