Star Magic artists Robi Domingo and Aya Fernandez shared important reasons and tips on why Filipinos should vote with Bayan Mo, iPatrol Mo in a virtual voter education forum recently.
As the September 30 deadline approaches, Robi reminded the teachers and students of Biliran Province State University that the Filipino people have the power to chart their future at the “Botante Ako! A Voter’s Education Forum.”
Using online shopping as a metaphor, Robi added that Filipinos must no longer fall for ‘scams’ as there is no ‘return to sender’ option after candidates are elected.
“Sana pagdating ng eleksyon, kung sino man ang na-add to cart mo, perfect fit siya sa’yo at sa values mo,” Robi explained.
Meanwhile, Aya Fernandez said that voting paves the way for positive change.
“We see a lot of problems going on. Sometimes it feels so overwhelming na parang, shucks may magagawa pa ba ako? Again, the good news is meron,” Aya reminded.
“List down the problems and compare it to the platforms of the candidates who are going to run. Nandoon ba ‘yung pagbabago na gusto niyong makita?” Aya said.
ABS-CBN Bayan Mo iPatrol Mo head Rowena Paraan and reporter Sherrie Ann Torres were also present at the event to share their expertise on citizen journalism and the role of the news media during elections.
