Mike replies: Maybe...but it's not the same.

Spoiling your ballot paper means your vote is categorised with all the people who tried to vote for a candidate but couldn't fill in the ballot paper properly. That is not the same as "none of the above" which positively indicates that you can both complete the ballot paper correctly and you think there are no worthy candidates.

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.
