Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

My vote isn't wasted...

My vote isn't wasted - it's reserved.

ryan replies: Not voting does make a difference.

Simply voting because 'people died for [my] right' is a painfully glib argument, which shows a tremendous lack of perspective.

Voting for a party, not on merit, but because i have the right cheapens both my vote and the legacy of the people who fought to ensure i had one.

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.
