Or you could join a party and lobby from within and maybe part of something exciting, like repealing section 28 or free school dinners or university for all who are bright enough, or just votes for everyone of an age.
All these things happened because passionate, hardworking people strove and fought for them.
This, however, is quite to the point. As mentioned previously, people (largely) aren't served because they don't vote, so politicans feel no need to appeal to and appease them, so they become more disengaged and don't vote... Disengagement is the problem, not the solution.
