Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I do not vote because democracy is a sham.

I do not vote because democracy has been corrupt for a very long time. We're taught to vote for a 'party' who shares our beliefs. Essentially, we're told to vote for the person that holds opinions closest to our own. That's is absolutely not how it is supposed to work. The people voted in office are there to REPRESENT OUR VIEWS. They are not there to represent their own. They person voted in should be the one who will talk to their constituents and voice THEIR opinions in the house, not their own, not their partys.

Democracy is a fucking scam.

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.
