Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I'm not voting because the village I live in, despite being equidistant to larger urban centres such as Walsall, Aldridge, Lichfield, and Sutton Coldfield, is tagged into the constituency of Tamworth - a town miles down the A5 which I rarely have need to visit. I doubt our current MP has ever been to my village, and is unlikely to listen the voices of people here if they ever countered those of the people of Tamworth. I would be willing to vote for an MP for a town with which I have an affinity, but not one we have been lumped with by the failed geography student who marked out the current constituency boundaries.

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.
