2019 Midterm Elections

Some friendly reminder to our kababayans out there, go out and vote on Monday (May 13, 2019). Exercise your right of suffrage. If you want your wishes for the government be known let your vote be your voice.

This midterm election will be our third time to vote. Hubby and I were so glad that we are exercising our right as a Filipino. In 2015, we were able to beat the deadline for Comelec registration. We took our biometrics at the Quezon City Hall braving the long lines and heat of the sun.

On election day, you should be able to prepare a list of your candidates to make it easier for you to find their names in the ballot.

And to avoid long queues in polling precincts, go to your designated polling place early. Without any hassle, you could cast your vote in probably less than 30 minutes.

Checking on the criteria we have here, we can now choose the candidates that deserve our votes. Have you decided whom to vote for the midterm elections? Who is your bet?

President Rodrigo Duterte has signed into law (Republic Act No. 11055) a measure that will establish a single national identification system in the country.

The Filipino Identification System will consolidate all government-issued ID systems into one to improve government services and limit red tape in government transactions.

To date, 73 percent of Pinoys support the National ID System.
