10 HAPPY STEPS TO BECOME A REGISTERED VOTER FOR MAY 2016 (COMELEC REQUIREMENTS)

It has been fourteen years (14) that the constitution has bestowed upon me my right to suffrage.  But even so, I am so ashamed to admit that I have not participated in any election.  This year, things will change as I realized the power of my vote.  One vote that represents change, ONE VOTE for ONE SUCCESSFUL NATION.

I would like to encourage everyone to register as a voter as early as possible.  Your voices need to be heard and your vote is the only instrument to make that happen.

Here are the 10 HAPPY STEPS to a better Philippines:

10 HAPPY STEPS TO REGISTER AS A VOTER.

IMG_0967
STEP 1: Pumunta sa Office of the Election Officer ng lugar kung saan pinili mong bumoto at siguraduhin na ikaw ay residente dito for at least six (6) months bago pa mag May 9, 2016.

STEP 2: Pa verify niyo ang inyong pangalan at mag-fill out ng form sa tabi, in this case e sa tabi tabi talaga. Sana lang magkaroon ng maganda at komportableng espasyo kung saan ginagawa ito. Kung sabagay, past is past, kaya tayo magreregister para mapili natin ang mga bagong lider na mag-i-improve ng mga kalakarang ganito.

STEP 3: Matapos ma-fill out ng form ay i-submit kay madam para ma-encode niya ito.

STEP 4: Mag relax, stomach in para ma-picturan kayo. Huwag mag-request ng whole body picture dahil mukha mo lang ang kukunan. Ang maganda dito e makaka-smile ka pa, di tulad sa NBI na pag-upo mo palang e di mo naramdaman na nakunan ka na pala kaya kahit na ngarag ka sa picture ay wala kang magagawa.

STEP 5: Pumirma digitally.

STEP 6: Biometrics. Left and Right thumb and index finger lang. Hindi po kasali ang talampakan.

STEP 7: I-se-save na ni Madam ang file mo, be sure to check na na-save nga kasi baka di ka maka-boto sa susunod na botohan dahil lang hindi na-hit ang SAVE!

STEP 8: Lumabas na sa opisina matapos makuha ang acknowledgement receipt na ito. Bumalik nalang daw after 3 to 5 years for your ID, malamang by that time e may mga anak ka na kung wala ka pang anak ngayon, nakapagtapos ka na sa pag-aaral kung estudyante ka pa, nakatuluyan mo na ang iyong bf or gf, nakapag-abroad ka na, or kung ano pang pangyayari sa buhay mo. Pero isa lang ang sigurado, magkakaroon ka na ng voter’s ID 3 to 5 years from now. Di ba? Medyo mahirap kasi ang raw material ng Voter’s ID kasi kakaiba ito, minimina pa ito sa kai-laliman ng lupa.

STEP 9: Gumilid ng konti from the office at magpa-picture hawak ang acknowledgement receipt. Make sure to find the best angle of your face.
IMG_0982
STEP 10-A: Umupo ng konti at bumwelo.
IMG_0983
STEP 10-B: Lumundag sa tuwa at magpakuha ng jump shot dahil registered voter ka na!

Now that you have completed the 10 happy steps to become a registered voter, you can now start choosing your 2016 president.  Would it be GRACE POE, MAR ROXAS or DUTERTE?

Ikaw, sinong presidente mo?  Well, pa-register ka muna bago ka mag-react! 🙂  Happy registration to everyone!!

    1. Hi valerie, thanks for reading. Upon confirmation, there is RA 10367 na. No Biometrics, No Vote for 2016. So if you are registered but your biometrics were not taken during the time of registration, kindly visit the COMELEC office to have your biometrics taken. Please share this info. Thanks.
