Hey Pinoys out there.... Did You Vote???

Indelible ink on the index finger - signifies that a person has already exercised their right to vote and chose the nations leaders.

Yesterday, elections for senators, mayors, governors, congressmen, councilors and such were concluded. Counting ensues and is still on going. some places declared failure of elections for a variety of reasons and some had a peaceful and generally uneventful elections. How about in your place? Did you vote? Do you think this election was a success? Do you think the COMELEC handled this election well? You're opinions will be highly appreciated. Thanks ^_^

Yep, I did vote. I'm from Bacoor, Cavite but failed to register here after we moved from Imus. I was a registered voter there(Imus), so I went there to cast my vote. I'm not informed yet on who won for the Gubernatorial race, for the Congressman and the town's mayor in Imus. But I am happy that Bacoor held a peaceful election, with minor problems regarding the then Bacoor Mayor Castillo who was caut=ght red-handed handling some bribe to voter;s days before the election period came. I'm also happy that he lost!LoL He and his wife (Jessie Castillo ran for congress and his wife as Bacoor mayor), both of them lost. The new Bacoor Mayor is no other than Bong Revilla's younger brother, Strike Revilla. A former Bacoor councilor and a member of the PCSO board of Directors(am not quite sure about this though). I just hope that Strike would made better improvements here, especially on traffic, garbage disposal and collections.

Hi there fellow pinoy... Yup... i actually voted and even participated in the election day as a volunteer in PPCRV. And its really fulfilling especially when you give yourself for the service of our fellow Filipino. Well, in our place as i observe it, it was peaceful, all pollwatchers are very responsible for the job assigned to them, and they really secure the votes for the party or candidate they serve, thats why irregularities were easily reported and acted upon... I think its a success on peaceful places, but to other place where crimes related election is reported i think its not. As to COMELEC... well, their actually doing their job, most especially for letting foreigners participate in observing our election day. It means they are very confident and open to objective criticism... And lastly, we still have to pray for the Best result of the canvassing... Goodluck for that fellow Pinoys...

I did not. I know I should have but I don't really trust majority of the candidates running for this election. Most of them are really "TRAPO"s.
