Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I can't be arsed

I can't be arsed

Robbo replies: So if the day should arrive where, for one reason or another, you lost your job or your source of income ceased, perhaps the state will refuse to give you benefits because they can't be arsed to look at your application... if you can be arsed to fill one in.

Michael replies: So instead of spending time thinking of reasons not to vote like the others of this site, time which may have been better spent finding a reason TO vote, you decided to be brutally truthful.

Thank you, your honesty is in equal parts horrifying and refreshing.

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.
