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

I had a nice little factory set up in Edinburgh to help "readjust" votes from an uneducated public into being more government friendly. I was just trying to help out to ensure that postal voting wasn't going to be subject to fraud (after all the judge in the Birmingham case did say that the voting envelopes might have well as said "steal me" on them). Well the local constabulary weren't very impressed by my arguments and seemed to think it was unfair. I am very confused about what the government wants on this issue. This is a police state if you ask me.

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.
