We were able to beat the deadline for Comelec registration last October 31. Hubby and I are like new voters next year since we weren’t able to vote for several elections in the past. We registered and took our biometrics at the Quezon City Hall braving the long lines and heat of the sun.
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 May 2016 elections? Who is your bet?

Having the voters’ registration in malls is the best move yet the government has done to hasten registration process and encourage more first time voters to register for the 2016 elections. The Commission on Elections has teamed up with malls in Metro Manila to make this one big program possible. Since the registration will be during mall hours, shoppers will have the opportunity to do everything while inside the mall. They can pay the bills, do some shopping for musicians friend bass amp, grocery shopping, or watch a movie after registration. Sounds very convenient to me. Ours is scheduled this weekend in Trinoma Mall. Voters registration is ongoing until October 31, from Sunday to Friday.
