Almost the same here. I'm voting for my local opposition to my MP.
I'm not in the constituencies of any of the above.

I don't vote, as it's effectively endorsing a system which denies me a say in the government of the day. But I clicked Labour, because that's who I would vote for.

First time ever not voting in a GE
Moved house, will be in Japan and can't be bothered busting a gut to get on the electoral register and try and arrange a postal proxy vote in one of the safest tory seats in the country.
I'll save for when that intellectual featherweight May has screwed things up so badly that I have a chance of voting out Nadine Dorries.

Generally people who don't vote are clueless idiots, their great grandfathers didn't have the right to vote and would punch them in the eye for being dicks and no exercising their democratic rights.

I hope my GGF realises the special circs of my not bothering.

My town is fiercely Tory, so there's never been a lot of point in me voting.

I might vote Green, so I can at least have a moan, but I'm looking forward to Corbyn getting skyward.

I'm Irish, but I'd vote for Farron in the hope that the Tories don't get too much of a majority and Corbyn goes, so Labour can climb out of limbo.

My Grandad died in 1994 at the age of 86. There hasn't been an election since he was old enough to vote, to the present day, where the same party hasn't won in my constituency. Forgive me if I'm not exercising my democratic right, but it doesn't appear to me that I can have any effect on the result of the general election. It would seem skewed towards not giving me any democratic right.

Results where I live. I'll still vote Labour. I have never seen Brady do a thing round our way. Ever. He has never been vocal about anything in Trafford, other than resigning from the shadow cabinet because of Cameron's policy toward grammar schools.

Anyway, apart from Toby and Yomp, who are the BCB tories?

That IS a bit odd - five Tory votes.

Someone's probably taking the piss.
