    DILG-10 heightens youth awareness on responsible voting

    CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (PIA)–To help voters, particularly the youth, on the information to consider when selecting the candidates to be elected into public office, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG)-10 held the Information Drive on Responsible Voting of the Youth and 2022 Elections, April 27 at SM CDO Uptown, here.

    DILG Usec for Plans, Public Affairs, and Communications Jonathan Malaya said the activity serves as an avenue to learn from the Commission on Elections (Comelec), Legal Network for Truthful Elections (LENTE) Philippines and DILG since a mock election will be held where participants are given sample ballots and markers.

    “The next six years is very critical for the country. We are trying to recover from the adverse effects of the pandemic and part of that is ensuring that we will be electing the right people to office,” DILG-10 Regional Director Arnel Agabe said, citing the great role of the youth in choosing the leaders who can improve the country’s current situation.

    During the info drive, over 20 youth from Barangay 28, 32 and Camaman-an had the chance to join the mock election and were taught on the usage of the vote counting machine (VCM) with the supervision of Comelec-10.

    The commission also shared the guidelines as well as the process during the elections come May 9, 2022. To ensure safety of stakeholders, only 10 voters at the same time are allowed in a voting precinct, says Lawyer Rowell Valledor of Comelec-10. 

    The number of persons allowed already include those who will be lining up for express lanes. Vaccination cards are not required upon entry and those who will manifest symptoms of COVID-19 will be handled at the isolation polling place and will still be able to cast their votes.

    “Observance, compliance to the minimum health standards should be at the top of the things that we would be doing as we attend, as we participate in this election and the other activities going towards election,” Agabe said. 

    The said drive also aims to empower the youth with knowledge regarding significant factors that may affect their decision, and ensure their participation in deciding for the future of the country on the 2022 NLE. (RTP/PIA-10)
