Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

It only encourages them....

1. It legitimizes the idea that a majority should have the right to tell me what to do.
2. I have a far far better chance of winning the lottery than affecting the outcome of the election, and lottery tickets are cheaper than the time and effort involved in getting out to the polls. Consequently, voting is irrational except for those folks who do it for the entertainment value; for the marginal hour of my time, I'd sooner go see a movie.

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.
