HALALAN 2013

HALALAN 2013

We are once again called upon to decide on the fate and future of our nation, and this grave responsibility ought to be foremost in the minds of every registered voter. Therefore, everyone should be fully aware of the basic procedures involved on Election Day itself. It bears remembering that once again, the election will be using the PCOS machine, which was introduced to the voting public for the first time in the presidential elections of 2010.

The process is similar to the traditional manual voting method in many ways. After verification of voter’s identity, the election official presents the voter with a ballot. Since the ballot will be fed to a machine for counting, the similarities end there. The ballot is filled out by shading the oval placed next to the name of the candidate.

When it comes to shading the ballot, there is no need to be apprehensive about doing it wrong. The requirement is that the oval be shaded fully. But, for as long as over 50% the area is shaded, the vote is still counted and valid. Now, in situations where the voter shades two spaces for one position (overvoting) the whole ballot would not be invalidated. But the vote for that particular position is invalidated.

Know the issues that you value. Before listening to various political platforms, you must first know the issues that are important to you. Write these down and hold them up against each candidate’s platform. For example, if you value women’s rights, identify those who will fight to enhance, preserve, or protect these once they are elected. When you have identified the issues, it will be easier for you to trim down your list of candidates.

Read between the lines. Of course, most candidates could just be bluffing to get your precious vote. Don’t fall for sugar-coated statements. One good way to know if a candidate is indeed a wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing is to look at his track record of government service. Remember, actions speak louder than words.

Know the qualifications of the candidate. This is a very important thing to keep in mind for obvious reasons. A candidate, once voted into office, must be able to perform the responsibilities the position requires. At the very least, the candidate must be capable of analytically and critical thinking. And so should you, the voter, especially during election season.

Know your voting precinct. Take note of the voting precinct where you are registered as a voter prior to May 10. This is very important so you can avoid undue stress on voting day. Don’t make it more stressful than it already is.  Remember, it’s going to most likely be hot, and there will surely be very long lines you’ll have to deal with.

If you want to vote, make sure nothing or no one stops you from voting. Stand by your principles and be true to what you believe in. Remember, your vote is your voice. Vote conscientiously, and make it count.

The Ballot: Important Reminders for Voters

A registered voter is given only one ballot. In case a voter makes a mistake (shades the wrong space corresponding to a candidate’s name, then he or she would have to live with it. The best thing to do is to make sure that no errors are made since there are no second chances. There are no proxies as well when the time to insert the ballot into the machine comes. Once the voter inserts the official ballot, it is counted as one, marked by a tick on the counter.

 

Good to know: What makes the ballot secure?

Each ballot is equipped with a barcode that is in itself unique. The main purpose of this identifier is for the ballot to be counted only once. This security measure ensures that validity of the vote. The PCOS machine is equipped with a couple of security measures as well. First of all, each PCOS machine is assigned a specific precinct. It will not accept ballots that are not meant for that particular precinct. And the PCOS machine has a lens that has the capability to detect ultraviolet (UV) ink. The machine scans for this before accepting the ballot being fed to it.

The main feature is a street parade with participants in bright coloured costumes dancing to the rhythm of drums, trumpets and native gongs. Smaller versions of the festival are held in various parts of the province, also to celebrate and honor the Santo Niño. There is also a “Sinulog sa Kabataan” performed by the youths of Cebu a week before the parade. Recently, the festival has been promoted as a tourist attraction, with a contest featuring contingents from various parts of the country. The Sinulog Contest is usually held in the Cebu City Sports Complex.

Les Miserables in Cebu Cultural Center

Les Miserables in Cebu Cultural Center

This is the vision of the Provincial Government of Cebu and the Philippine Exhibits and Themeparks Corporation (PETCO) as they prepare to open the Cebu Cultural Center (CCC) on March 16, 2012.

The Summary of Les Miserables

Les Miserables is a story of Jean Valjean, an escaped convict whose life is transformed and turned toward goodness by an act of Christian charity. It is also a history of Hugo’s time. With wealth of social and philosophical commentary, the work is an eloquent plea for social reform.

Jean Valjean was released after nineteen years in prison. He had been sentenced to a term of five years because he stole a loaf of bread to feed his starving sister and family. Jean’s sentenced was increased because of his attempts to escape. During his imprisonment, he astonished others by his exhibitions of unusual physical strength.

Freed at last, he started out on foot for a distant part of the country. Innkeepers refused him food and lodging because his yellow passport revealed that he was an ex-convict. Finally, he came to the house of Bishop of Digne, a saintly man, who treated him graciously, fed him, and gave him a bed. During the night Jean stole the Bishop’s silverware and fled. The incident was reported , and the policemen immediately captured him with the stolen goods. Without any censure, the priest did not only give him what he had stolen, but also added his silver candlesticks to the gift. The Bishop told the gendermes that those silverware were given to Jean as present. So, the astonished gendermes let the prisoner go. Alone with the Bishop, Jean was confounded by the churchman’s attitude; though, the Bishop asked only that he should use the silver as means of living an honest life.
