Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I have given up voting for the least...

I have given up voting for the least of two evils. I hate to say things like this but in the old days there was at least one or two good people running for office. Now they just seem to be professional politicians. The only job of a professional politician is to make sure that they are reelected. This means that they will do nothing that is good for the people they represent if it will not bring in money or votes. Lets face it doing the right thing does not always win popularity contest.

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.
