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

They're not voting because...

I live in a Massive Conservative Majority...

I live in a Massive Conservative Majority. Why bother? The result is a foregone conclusion.

sans replies: nothing is foregone. Was Portillo lost of his seat in 1997 foregone? If only past information was used to forecast the future then would not the Conservative party be perpetually be in power i.e. how did Labour win in 1997? or the conservative's under thatcher win their landslides? I live in a seat with a large majority for a party I don't support, but the party I do support campaigns every year and in all the local elections and support for them is building. I can see them taking the seat in this or the next election. It might not be as immediate as you want but large majorities can and have been overturned. See all the by-election results since the last general elections

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.
