POSTED: Thursday 5 May, 2245BST

Not Apathetic, where people are giving their reasons for abstaining, is having a very busy day of it: and has spawned a twin.

I Voted For You Because lets you enter your postcode and, if you voted for the winner in your area, you tell them what their mandate is. As we brace ourselves to be relentlessly told "what the results clearly tell us", the actual reasons for votes cast should be a useful corrective.

Most recent post: "I voted for you because you told me you'd be a stroppy backbencher from now on - and I'm looking forward to it!" (BBC not responsible for the content of external websites.)

I still think there should be a box on every ballot paper for 'none of the above'. If you want to vote and there is no-one you want to vote for then all you can do at the moment is spoil your paper or not bother at all.
