Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

What's the point!

What's the point? Dangle a carrot before the day and then snatch it back a day later. Blatant lies get swept away in a torrent on spin. The cost of living rises but yet we are somehow more prosperous? More & more manufacturing and service industries are disappearing or moving to cheaper continents.

We need leaders who really represent the people of this country and will build it from the inside out. What happened to law & order, education, being able to go to McDonalds for lunch, without having to pass a security guard?

The ballot papers should have a valid box for an abstinence vote. I think all parties would be embarrassed by the outcome

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.
