www.notapathetic.com is a little project built by volunteers at mySociety to give a voice to people who won't be voting in the general election. It's non-judgmental and nonpartisan: we just want to give the 40% of the electorate who won't be showing up at the polling stations come May 5th a place to explain what is keeping them away. Unlike the launch of www.writetothem.com , we've chosen a grassroots approach to this launch. We'd like people to mail it to their non-voting friends, and (crucially), we'd like a group of dedicated souls to print out a few pages, cut them up into leaflets, and deliver them to 100 homes in their local area (about 30 minutes of healthsome exercise). If this is repeated enough times, it'll really help spread the message of NotApathetic.com to those people who are least likely to stumble across it on a day-to-day basis. We've already had 25 people complete one pledge and deliver 2500 flyers, and so now we thought it was time to up the ambition! We'll supply a nicely designed set of flyers for people to print out (10 on each page). Remember, you won't be alone - if the pledge suceeds there'll be at least 99 other people spreading the word. This page is powered by PledgeBank, mySociety's next project. We're just about to start field-testing pledgebank, and if you think you could use it in your local area, please contact us using the link at the top of the page.
