I don't want either party (because let's face it, in a general election there are only two), and quite frankly given the choice between voting for the lesser of two evils (a poor substitute for democracy) and avoiding extra letterbox spam by not being on the electoral roll, I'll choose the latter every time.

Richard replies: When you register to vote, do not give permission for your details to appear on the public roll - that is, the version of the electoral roll that can be accessed by anyone who pays the requisite fee.

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.
