Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I have written, phoned and emailed the Liberal Democrats for the last 3 weeks, asking them certain questions regarding their taxation "policy".
I asked what their projected local income tax rates would be for Ipswich, Suffolk - where I live.
I asked how this tax would be collected (through PAYE, pre-year demand, post-year demand etc...)
I asked what would happen if I moved home to a different authority during the tax year.
Response... nothing. When I ring it's "give us your number and we'll get back" (nobody ever does).
When I write, no response.
When I email, no response.

I'm not 100% apathetic yet, but I will not be voting LibDems.

(I am not a member of any political party, nor am I a candidate, not do I know anyone standing)

I email HomeChoice re: broadband options: no response....what does one do with one's opinions / money / requests for assistance when no one can be bothered to answer you?

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.
