Why be silent in 2024?

If you don't vote,
  you don't count,
    and don't matter.

So either Vote…
or Vote None in protest.

There's no reason to be silent.

'Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence.'

Leonardo da Vinci  1452 ‑ 1519

With the country so divided, it is more important than ever to show which politicians speak for you, or that none of them speak for you.

But in each General Election around a third of registered voters do not actually vote.

Back in 2001 and 2005 nearly as many registered voters did not vote, as voted Labour and Conservative combined.

Non-voters are silent and invisible.  They are not shown in the results.  Not voting is explained away as apathy.

So it's time to be heard.

Goal:  If just some of the unheard third Vote for what they believe in, the results of the election can change.  See the Real Results.

Goal:  If just some Vote NONE, then the protest for change could be the biggest ever public protest in UK history.  It could establish the protest vote as part of UK politics.

So even if you really cannot vote for any of the candidates…  use your vote.

Either Vote for a candidate or party who you trust to work hard for things you believe in,

or Vote NONE in protest.

Voting NONE is a positive protest, to say:

'I believe in democracy, but I do not support any of the candidates.  I want better politics in the UK'.

This website offers practical information on voting and protest votes, as well as argument, debate and results.

2015 results: 34% were silent.

Why use your vote?    Why Vote?    Why Vote NONE?
