Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

The election is a mere pretence at democracy. It merely puts in place those who act without any semblance of restraint for years. That is not democracy. Until we, the people, directly elect leaders, elect a parliament in two houses which is genuinely independent of the executive and scrutineses properly all proposed legislation, have a media free of interests to protect by cosying up to politicians and above all until we have constitutional rights secure from interference from politicians, we will have no democracy. We shall never get it via the present system

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.
