Season’s Greetings from the First Time Voters Network! + Appeal to Register :D

24 12 2009

Dear friends,

FTV would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous and Productive 2010!

Likewise, FTV would like to thank everyone for a very wonderful and fruitful year, as always!

Aside from enjoying the holidays, FTV encourages those who are eligible to vote in May 2010 but have failed to register last October, to please visit your local COMELEC offices this vacation to register! You only need to bring one valid i.d., if you have a physical disability, make sure that you will be able to indicate in your application your physical/medical condition. You have to be 18 years and above old on or before May 10, 2010 to register.

While the extension of registration poses inevitable changes to the election calendar and difficulties for COMELEC, we hope everyone will maximize the given time. Let us not wait again for the deadline to register. Change starts to happen when we will it to happen. So find the will to REGISTER first. 🙂

To all those who intend to register this Christmas break, you may only register on these dates: December 21, 22, 23, 28, and 29, 2009.

Please see the rest of the schedule of the re-opening of registration below:

Last Day to Post Notice of ERB Hearing: January 04, 2010

Last Day to File Opposition to Applications for Registration: January 06, 2010

Hearing Approval/Disapproval of Applications: January 09, 2010

COMELEC is NOT accepting requests for transfer, change of status, reactivation and other registration services.

First Time Voters registration only!


Please be guided accordingly and kindly share this information.

Again, please don’t forget to bring one valid i.d., if you do not have an i.d., you need to bring someone from your place who is also a registered voter who can vouch for you or attest to the credibility of your personhood.

Again, thank you, for all the support and hard work in order to make FTV what it is now, a dynamic network of young people with the biggest hearts for this nation!

Register. Vote. Transform!
