Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

Because I'm average...

I have no faith in the ability of a bunch of Public School boys, with no grasp of real life, to run the country.
Because of the last two governments I now have 12000 worth of debt, failed my degree trying to earn enough money to live, and then got sacked from Job seekers Allowance because they didn't agree with my reasons for giving up my job: namely, I couldn't afford to live away from home any more. It seems that the Government seem to make things very easy for people who are already loaded, and people who can't be vothered to try. Those in the middle ground such as me, who try really really hard but don't have the money to strike out properly just spiral into debt due to the poor management of time and benefits.
I will be handing in my ballot paper but it will be blank.

Glenn replies: Don't hand a blank ballot paper in or you may just find you voted for the most corrupt of the candidates. Better to spoil your paper.

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.
