Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I'm a British citizen but I live in ...

I'm a British citizen but I live in Australia. I would *love* to vote, but I would have had to register as an overseas voter by March 11th. And I didn't. Not out of apathy, simply because I didn't know about that deadline until it was too late.

Besides, who would really have their mind on British politics when they could be enjoying the Aussie summer?

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.
