Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I live in Australia. I used to live ...

I live in Australia. I used to live in the UK and am eligible to vote in the UK.

I'm not registering (or voting)as:

(a) my vote would be conted in East Yorkshire where unless you're a Tory and farm pigs you're never going to get elected

(b) more seriously, have you ever tried registering as an overseas voter? You need to find someone to whom you're not related and has a UK passport to countersign your delaration - not that easy

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.
