Why be silent in elections?
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
In previous general elections over a third of registered voters did not vote.
In 2005 it was nearly as many as voted Labour and Conservative combined!
Non-voters are 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 34% 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 can be the biggest ever public protest in UK history. It can establish the protest vote as part of UK politics.
So even if you are fed up with UK politics… use your vote.
Either Vote for a candidate 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.
Help to make sure that everyone realises the option to either Vote, or Vote NONE.
