bob replies: It's a great idea to spoil your ballot. Could we start a new political movement - "None of the Above" and if enough people voted for us by spoiling their ballot, we could demand that ALL the current politians retire and get someone in who would run the country for the people not for themselves?

GM replies: I concur. Spoiling the ballot paper is a great way of indicating your anarcho-syndicalist viewpoint.

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.
