Well, they say every vote counts; It doesn't.

Our First Past The Post voting system, practically, literally means every vote doesn't count, only the winning one does.

That's just one reason anyway, I'd say. Apathy, as you said, is a very big one as well. I know someone who doesn't vote because they simply don't care.

I looked and interestingly turnout has been increasing over the last few General Elections... Although, compared to turnout historically, currently it is relatively low. I've found a chart with turnout from 1945-2015: http://www.ukpolitical.info/Turnout45.htm. Turnout appears to have dropped most dramatically between the years: 1992-2001.

Hope this helps
