Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I would vote if I could

I would vote if I could. Unfortunately, this country operates on a principle of taxation without representation- as a 17-year old I can pay tax, get married, fight on the front lines of a conflict and yet I cannot vote to influence tax policy, the age of consent or unnecessary wars in foreign lands.

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.
