Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

why should I vote for a party and system...

why should I vote for a party and system that will just be used to legitimatise the current lack of true democracy in our country. a system of little difference between parties, who do not allow major question on how we live our lives to be aired. hiding behind the label of democracy with no real concrete system of engagement of peoples needs and abilities for self determintion.

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.
