  None of the above - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
None of the Above (NOTA) is a ballot choice in some jurisdictions or organizations, placed so as to allow the voter to indicate his disapproval with all of the candidates in any voting system.
Entities which include "None of the Above" on ballots as standard procedure include the United States Libertarian Party, the Green Party, the U.S. state of Nevada ("none of these candidates"), Russia and the Ukraine ("Against all"), and Spain (votos en blanco).
Thus "None of the Above" acts purely as a repository for protest votes.

 None of the Above
In a word, no. Choosing the 'none of the above' option means the voter has made a conscious decision that none of the candidates on the ballot are suitable to be his or her political representatives, and this register of dissatisfaction is qualitatively different from casting a spoiled vote.
Including the ‘none of the above’ option as a binding vote on the electronic ballot would marginally raise the quota compared with quotas produced under the old paper-based ballot system, where ‘invalid’ votes (some of which were purposefully ‘spoiled’) were not included as part of the total valid poll.
The provision of a 'none of the above' option means the voter is not forced to select a candidate and can express his or her will that none of the candidates on the ballot should be his or her political representatives.

 NoneOfTheAboveDiscuss - Atom Wiki
Hmmm, Nota could be considered short for the Latin phrase "nota bene" meaning "note well" - maybe a good esperanto-ish like name for the project, and people who need acronyms can "know" that is stands for none of the above, so you get the metahistorical humor thing happening too.
records a None Of The Above, then there is no reason not to start again with a clean slate taking in mind all of the proposals, and then giving them to some people who do for a living what we're doing here as a hobby.
That said it seems to me that Notas now have an obligation to "Lead, follow, or get out of the way." Come up with a qualified name you can support, a name that will draw my vote away from FeedCast, a name so cool that it brings in 100 new voters.

 About Voters for None Of The Above
Office holders, knowing they face "None of the Above" in the next election, would be encouraged to insure their re-election by focusing more on doing a good job in office and less on attempting to prevent the emergence of an effective opposition candidate.
Even when "None of the Above" does not win or is a non-binding NOTA, the reported NOTA vote would help identify those offices for which voters might be more receptive to new candidates in a future election as well as limits the winner's mandate.
Because the enactment of NOTA election laws transfer some of the power now exercised by the major political party organizations directly to the voters, it will take an enormous, sustained effort by many individuals and organizations to make the idea of a permanent, binding "None of the Above" a reality on the ballot.

NOTA would hardly cure all of contemporary American democracy's problems, but it would give voters a better alternative to the bad choices they often find in the polling booth and change candidates' behavior for the better.

 Libertarian Party Platform - ELECTION LAWS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
We should return to the previous electoral system where there was no official ballot or candidate approval at all, and therefore no state or federal restriction of access to a "single ballot." Instead, voters submitted their own choices and had the option of using "tickets" or cards printed by candidates or political parties.
In order to grant voters a full range of choice in federal, state, and local elections, we propose the addition of the alternative "None of the above is acceptable" to all ballots.
We further propose that in the event that "none of the above is acceptable" receives a plurality of votes in any election, either the elective office for that term should remain unfilled and unfunded, or there shall be a new election in which none of the losing candidates shall be eligible.
