Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

Because, despite my desire to as a politically aware 6th form student with a desire to actually vote and keep my concience from grumbling at the back of my mind, I'm under 18 so therefore can't vote, which is stupid. If we learnt politics at GCSE over stupid citizenship then perhaps there'd be less general apathy around and the voting age could be lowered. Anyway, it stands to reason that the people IN education should get a say ABOUT education. Grr.

lars replies: This appears to be a reoccurring point and I respect the eagerness to engage in politics. However, you really arent an oppressed and ignored minority striving for civil rights. So stop bleating, suffrage is your undisputed right. Merely reserved fairly and uniformly on grounds of maturity.

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.
