The Power of your Vote (part rua)

.

Russell Brand "I don't vote"

 

.

A point for some folk to think about if they are considering scrawling “No Confidence” on their voting paper…

Writing “No Confidence” carries zero weight.

Your ballot will simply be recorded as “spoiled” and categorised in a general “Invalid” category.

There is no such thing as a “No Confidence” category. Politicians will never see your “No Confidence” ballot paper. Neither will the Electoral Commission  keep a tally of “No Confidence votes” to pass on to politicians.

All that will happen is that your ballot is invalid and not counted.

Writing “No Confidence” on your ballot has simply rendered that person invisible and irrelevant  to the democratic process.

That is a self-indulgent luxury which we cannot afford.

Skipping voting is not rebellion its surrender
