The Right of Suffrage

Long settled is the principle that the right to vote is not merely a right but also a privilege.  It is also a duty.  Hence, all Filipinos who are qualified must exercise this privilege.

According to Article IV of the 1987 Constitution, the following are qualifications of voters:

1.Citizens of the Philippines
2. at least 18 years old
3. residents in the Philippines for at least one year and residency for 6 months at least in the place where they intend to vote
4.not disqualified by law to vote

See, not all are entitled to vote in the elections. So if you are a registered voter, you are privileged, so exercise it, fight for it. Your chosen candidate/s may not win but that is the essence of a democratic and republican country. 

As in life, we do not always win, but the important thing is we did our part. 

So please vote on May 13, 2013.
