Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I am not voting because whoever is in...

I am not voting because whoever is in power will fail to deliver.

The enormous amount of revenue collected by the myriad of taxes and duties will continue to be mis-spent.

Taxes will not be lowered, and will continue to rise.

The NHS will still be a mess.

Public transport will still be an embarrassment (we should look towards our European neighbours for how to do it properly).

The government will still pander to the whims of the US administration.

Crime, and in particular violent crime involving guns, will continue to increase.

Youre damned if you do and youre damned if you dont.

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.
