Villar, Legarda, Ocampo and Masa Picked By First Automated Elections Voter
In this historical absentee voting taking place starting today for OFWs in Hong Kong, Rowena Dela Cruz, the first Filipino in line to feed her ballot on the PCOS machine, reveals she gives her vote to Nationalista standard bearer Manny Villar as reported in today’s radio program with Noli De Castro on DZMM.
Report further states the first “Philippine automated election” voter voted for Loren Legarda as her vice presidential bet and shaded only two names in the senatorial list, the names of which were Satur Ocampo and Lisa Masa.
Ms Dela Cruz has this very rare opportunity to be the first Filipino to vote in the first automated election. She is a Filipino and she works in Hong Kong. But instead of her coming home to vote, the election comes to her.
That’s how important our vote is. Makes me even more convinced that I should go home this May 10, 2010 to cast my vote, even if it means in my part, spending money, taking effort, and risking my life in a notoriously hostile place for elections. I am leaving for Mindanao to vote.
