On Monday, the mid-term elections will happen. Unfortunately, I haven’t been participating in the actual exercise of voting for the past elections. The last time I voted was in the 2004 presidential elections. In 2007, I was in the US, and in 2010, I was in France for business trips so I missed those two and just blogged who I wanted to vote. I am now in the US and I really do not get the OAV registration process so I cannot vote again.
If I can vote, I would be voting for this roster:
- Bam Aquino
- Richard Gordon
- Risa Hontiveros
- Ramon Magsaysay Jr.
- Aquilino Pimentel III
Party List: Ang Ladlad
Unfortunately, I can only pick 5 candidates who I really want to vote for. I have some issues with the other candidates, or I am not informed enough to actually cast my vote for them. I’d rather support a handful of candidates than forcibly make a 12-man roster.
Hopefully, the voters are educated enough to actually cast votes to qualified candidates. I know it is just wishful thinking for me knowing that Nancy Binay and Cynthia Villar are in the upper echelons the surveys. How sad is that! Good luck Philippines!
