A few notes, I suppose.

First, the internet is surprisingly useful to voters this time around. If you need to know where you’re voting,

findprecinct.com

is the place to start. Need help deciding? I used the

sample ballot at the Eleksyon 2004 website

to help me fill up those slots.

Regarding my choices, the Concilors are all allied with Lakas-CMD, hence they are part of Sonny Belmonte’s ticket, who really deserves not only another term but a term with people he’s chosen to ally himself with. For president, I chose Roco, ‘coz hell, if by some miracle he wins I don’t wanna miss my chance to gloat that I voted for the candidate who was right in every possible way. For the party-list rep, last time around I voted for Bayan Muna, but I don’t really like how they’re soft on the NPA, whether or not the military allegations are true. Akbayan, while still left-leaning (to balance the center-to-right preferences of most mainstream politicians), at least recognizes that the NPA Permit-to-Campaign fees are downright extortion and should be criminalized. For the Senators, the only unusual choice is Doc Hussin (more Muslim representation), but the rest should be obvious. I actually had only 11 senators listed before deciding on Hussin.

So what will happen to the country now? Who knows, for a while I was thinking of voting for FPJ just to see what kind of new crap our country can go through…
