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

They're not voting because...

Living in Northern Ireland means my vote is effectively worthless. The big mainland parties stay away from here, and we have no devolved government - instead we get unelected government ministers running the place and doing what they please. All hail our non-elected overlords!

Anyways people here dont vote for normal parties, or for parties who set out specific goals, no we vote along sectarian lines to "keep the other lot out". Its a sad abuse of democracy.

That being said I wouldnt vote for ANY politician, it only encourages them.. god forbid we end up with even MORE of them..

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.
