These presidentiables may be the butt of the joke but let’s admire them for aspiring to be the next head of the state just to experience the change legit politicians always promise to us.
These nuisance candidates may seem funny but election is a critical matter. Your vote matters. Have you already registered for the Election 2016? Oct. 30, 2015 is the deadline of registration. Voters without biometric requirements are not allowed to vote, to verify if your registration record has biometrics data, you may use the Precinct Finder in COMELEC’s website. Remember: No bio, no boto.
