    I voted and always have since I was old enough to do it but I struggled this year as I think the main parties are all pretty bad, so as the title says who is choosing not to vote this time?

    Me because I can't actually vote for the main parties and a party I don't like have basically held this constituency for 20 years or so and it wouldn't matter if I voted for someone else

    have never voted. but i think when you look around at all the new cars on the road driven by the young and old (not so long ago there were always really old bangers on the road ), holidays being taken,lots of people including youngsters now owning their own homes and from what friends and family have said ,very quick hospital appointments, i really dont think it has been that bad under labour:confused:

    it's sad esp for women not to vote. women went thru a lot to win the right to vote, which is why i always do.

    A part of me sees the point of view of 'if you don't vote, you shouldn't complain', dunno why. If I wasn't sure I would put a big X through them all and put NONE on the sheet. Just me, I think I'd always flit or wish I had decided either way, and the only way I feel I can do that is if I write it down :blushing:

    I'm not voting as it's too much hassle to prove i'm entitled to a postal vote.

    Hear hear! My late grandmother was born in 1900... BEFORE women had the vote, so it would be disrespectful to her and the women of her generation who had to campaign so hard for so long.

    Exactly. Women should be able to chose not to vote if they want. Wasn't that the whole point giving women a choice

    but surely, but winning women the right to vote, that also extended to giving us the same rights as the guys... the democratic right to withold your vote?
