Don't people realise it is their democratic right to vote, to be able to influence where we are going as society? Don't they realise what a priviledge this is compared to old times and places with no democracy. It is a duty and responsibility in my opinion. If you don't vote, then don't complain!

Ummm...
There are some many countries where democracy is just a circus. I can absolutely understand why people do not believe in democracy anymore and prefer to stay home instead of going to vote for someone they don't believe in.
Platon wrote "Democracy is the tyranny of the ignorant people", for he thought you can make people stupid enough so they vote for the worst candidates, and this is kind of true...
Anyway, look at the world. The common feeling I see in the people is dejection. Humanity is losing the hope in the future, for the present is chaotic and unfair. Maybe is just that: people can't see the point of going to vote anymore, for everything is a big circus and they have the feeling they can do nothing about.
Maybe they are right, perhaps they are wrong. I just understand the feeling.

Most people know there vote doesn't really matter.  all the candidates are from the "inner circle" and are all pushing big government so it doesn't make much of a difference.

You said it yourself. Its our right to vote and we live in a democracy. Well, if they chose to have no part in an election, dont you think thats their right too and thats what democracy means? Having a decision whether appropriate or not? People misunderstood each other for thousands of years and believe me, being a law-abiding citizen is better than a qualified voter.
Qualified voters are often used for personal political gain of a running politician, some voters sell their votes for a price of course.
no offense but personal opinions are free whether your'e a voter or not. Just sayin.

Because you can allocate your time to better things than getting so obsessed in who to vote for and allot time to actually vote for them. First, the candidates, you don't know them personally. So in order to actually know who you should vote for, you're going to do a research by your own about them. And it's not just research about what they are promising to the world, but all of their achievements as well as their dark side. Who does that anymore?

People are bombarded by campaigns saying that this person is a good candidate because of this and that. At the end of the day, even if you go all the effort to vote who's deserving, people are always going to be a sheep. A sheep to what's going on in the world. One candidate is hyped so much and is liked by people, then people are going to vote for that candidate even if it's not the deserving person. All your research will just go to waste unless you educate the people around you that another candidate is more deserving. Who does that? Even if you do try to promote that person and tell everyone about that candidate, you can only influence a couple of people. People will always be a sheep.

Another thing, people don't vote so they free themselves of guilt. If ever the new President is acting up, they can simply say "Oh, I didn't vote for that." They can say that 100% for sure as opposed to voting for one of the many candidates. The candidate they voted for might win and then act up. They will be guilty that they are one of the people who voted for that candidate.

Let's talk on examples. During one of the recent elections in Russia people came to vote and found out that very early in the day the urn was already full of ballots. When the votes were counted, they counted the percents and the total number exceeded 100%, so more than the total number of citizens had to vote on that day. Anyway, Putin won, as always.

Democracy, suppose to be a government of the people for the people and by the people, a process of government where the electorate excercise their franchise and vote in credible candidates they believe have their interest 'electorate' at heart. But these hasnt been the case as the hopes of the masses are dashed to the wall due to the greed, self centeredness exhibited by the elected individuals into  public offices. The political aspirates now see politics as a means to satisfy their personal greed and emerse weath for their generation unborn.

Many people don't vote because of Numbness, detachment, sluggishness, absence of instruction and a total absence of comprehension about the idea of aggregate activity are more probable the genuine reason for their inability to vote. None of their refered to complaints hold any water whatsoever in the event that we could conquer these hidden components.

They dont know the responsibility and they are not into politics.

I am one of those people who doesn't vote during the election. Let me explain why and I am not making any excuse. It so happen that I got busy every time there is a registration to vote. I am in no position to ask for a leave at work because I know how much I am needed. You are right I can't complain about government officials because I am not exercising my right to vote. What I won't stop doing is to comment on what are the right things that the government should have done. Complaining and providing your insight about things are two different categories.

People don't vote for three main reasons. First, they are so intelligent to know that the candidates doesn't deserve their vote, no one deserve their vote. They are so smart to determine who has it and who don't have it. They are so knowledgeable about how politics work in a filthy way. Second, voters are so stupid not voting because they do not know their true power. They are ignorant to determine how powerful their vote is and how it can change the system of the  government. Third and lastly, because of their religion mandate. There are some religious groups who does not exercise their power to vote sincethwy are not allowed to do so.

someone who does not choose it for some reason, the first because there is no match with the selected, the second because not familiar with the selected, and the third because it does not like to choose or can be said neutral, that's some reason why I do not choose

If you lived in poor country (like Russia, Ukraine) you would understand why people do not go to the elections. People are disappointed in politics, they do not believe them, new faces do not appear, all the candidates are the same notorious thiefs that try to have a politic power over and over again. Moreover, if the honest  young human being comes to the politic in these countries, the system breaks him and makes him whether a new thief or made him go.

Different reasons.

1. They don't care.
2. They might care a little but are not motivated.
3. They care but hate the choices they have.

If you vote...
YOU ARE THE PROBLEM

That means you GAVE PERMISSION to the RICH POWERFUL to FUCK YOU
How can you GIVE permission to MURDER & STEAL from you brothers and neighbours?

Most people are to stupid to realize that their GOVERNMENT IS THEIR ENEMY
They are victims of PROPAGANDA

READ & STUDY REAL HISTORY..Many great men have wrote about this trick to fool people.
VOLATAIRE etc...Mark Twain said "If voting made any difference they would make it illegal"
READ! NOAM CHOMSKY's "Manufacturing Consent"..they need to trick you into making their crimes legal and normal.


EVERYTHING you think you know and have been taught IS A LIE A FRAUD A SCHEME TO FUCK YOU.
EVEN THE YEAR 2018 is a FRAUD LIE....They made a fake history of almost 1000 years.
You will easily see and find how voting is a WEAPON they USE AGAINST YOU.

The most stupid are the fools that think they can change things by voting. or by protesting
You only teach them how to control and fuck you again or how easy it is to bribe you with toys
READ about Roman Caesar's tricks to control people... learn about "Bread & Circus's

State-ism and GOVERNMENTS ARE by far
"THEE MOST DANGEROUS RELIGION" !!!!!!!!
READ THAT BOOK with the same title BY LARKIN ROSE

ALL LAWS ARE MADE TO PROTECT THE RICH AND POWERFUL NOT TO HELP THE POOR OR AVERAGE PERSON
GOOD PEOPLE DON"T NEED ANY LAWS..THEY ARE HONEST AND FAIR.

EVERYONE KNOWS in their heart GOVERNMENTS are THE PROBLEM..

NEVER EVER VOTE..
EVEN IF you find an honest man loyal to his people they will just kill him...the did SO SO many times.
JFK...ALLENDE...etc...
They ONLY LET THE SCUM BAGs the stupid & the corrupt get elected every time.
WAKE UP !!!!

Though it is  our political right to vote, but we refuse to vote and become apolitical because of bad representation from the elected representatives in power. This people that bears the Democratic power neglect the interest of the masses and this has been happening over the years, going to vote again is like wasting ones time because anybody that comes to power will always neglect the interest of the masses. Hence voting without getting the expected outcome is a wastage of vote(as people think)

In my opinion, there are options:
- people are disillusioned with power;
- people are happy with everything and they think that nothing will change.
- does not support either side;
- people believe that they do not concern politics.
In my opinion, you need to vote, every voice can change something.
The policy is directly related to the economy!

In India these are some reason for this...
1.Most of the people left their home town for doing job, they don't want to take pain to come back for voting only.
2.80% election candidate are criminals....
3.Election campaign are based on caste, religion etc.
4.There are no hope with election.

We know how important the election is. It is our duty and responsibility to vote. Voting is one of our rights to select our leader, but usually, people dont vote. We sometimes think that there is always a cheatin on election. Those people who does not vote had this kind of mind set.

People have fought and died to give us our right to vote so it should be taken seriously. Nowadays especially with the younger generation they feel that voting is a chore and will not make any difference either way
