The Youth Vote (Yvote) Philippines, in its commitment of getting the youth involved in the 2010 National Election will having a forum entitled “Gusto kong MAGREHISTRO, Gusto kong BUMOTO!” on Thursday, April 30, 2009, from 6:00 to 7:30 PM at AIM Conference Room, Makati City. This is part of Youth Vote’s summer registration campaign and will tackle the process of registration and issues related to it.
COMELEC Commissioner Rene Sarmiento will be present to deliver his message to the youth regarding the importance of registering for the national elections in 2010. The forum will also serve as a venue for the COMELEC and the youth to exchange concerns on registration irregularities.
Yvote Philippines will be launching Kabataang Rehistrado: 2010 headshots as part of making its registration campaign exciting yet meaningful for first time registrants. The project invites the registrants to send in actual photos of their registration. The ten best photos will then be posted at the Yvote website (www.youthvotephilippines.com) and blogsite. 10 minutes, 10 friends, 10 flyers for 2010, initiated by the Ayala Young Leaders, will also take flight on May 11, 2009 where youth volunteers will conduct distribution of “How to Register to Vote for 2010” in strategic locations such as MRT and LRT stations, shopping malls, bus stations, offices and schools. The campaign plan is to encourage 10 of your friends to dedicate 10 minutes of their time to distribute 10 flyers.
“Gusto kong MAGREHISTRO, Gusto kong BUMOTO!” forum is part of the We Deserve Better Forum series, spearheaded by the Movement for Good Governance (MGG), a group of ordinary citizens who profess their belief in transparency and accountability in governance.
