We represent the None of the Above campaign in the UK
‘NOTA’ is a political campaign movement committed to forcing an official None Of The Above option on UK ballot paper for all future elections.
HOW ARE WE PLANNING ON DOING THIS?
By entering None of the Above (NOTA) candidates across the UK in the next general election in 2015 this will give a voice to all the people who don't vote for reasons such as...
‘There's no one worth voting for or they are all as bad as each other’
It will also give a genuine protest vote to people who have voted for parties such as UKIP in the false belief its a protest vote.
We need people willing to stand up and be counted as we challenge the current system, if you think you could stand for your area in 2015 please get in touch either here or via email to
You will be directed to your nearest NotaVote regional administrator.
People are also required for admin, marketing and publicity again please get in touch as above.
UNSURE WHAT NOTA IS?
An official None Of The Above (NOTA) option is an official box that appears at the bottom of a ballot paper. It enables the voter to register a vote of no confidence in all the parties and candidates put forward at election time, if they so choose.
Some may call it a protest vote but it is in fact far more than a protest vote it is the cornerstone on which a truly inclusive democracy can be built.
WHY DO WE NEED NOTA?
To attract people back to the polling station if only 50% of the electorate vote that gives the winning party a majority and mandate of only 25% of the whole electorate this is not a fair democratic system.
Many people don't bother to vote and this needs to be rectified, not voting is not a protest vote, it is simply not participating and can be dismissed as voter apathy with no further analysis.
Spoiling the ballot is not the same either as spoilt ballots can be counted as spoilt in error. Any spoilt vote count is therefore meaningless and does not provide a measure of voter discontent. An official NOTA option would.
