Here's the thing: if you don't vote, then why would they care what you want? Your opinion doesn't affect them.

Yes, the system is evil and uncaring and wrong and yadda yadda yadda. What are you going to do about that? Why should anybody with any power care about your opinion on the subject? The one action you have that most directly affects them is the one you've announced to the world you're not using.

They're going to prioritize appeasing the people who do vote (to the minimum amount that allows them to keep office while also pandering to their corporate masters/cronies/special-interest-groups/lizardpeople/what-have-you). If you want electoral reform, vote for somebody who supports electoral reform. If nobody does, run on a platform of electoral reform.
