MANILA, Philippines – Have you made your choice yet?
We at Rappler believe that getting to know the candidates is the first step to an informed vote this coming election.
To help you make this important decision, we did extensive research on the senatorial candidates and organized everything we know about them in our interactive candidate briefs.
Each brief includes the personal biography of each candidate, their career timelines, position taken on issues, ranking in the surveys as well as related stories and video of them.
For candidates who have held positions in government, we also include relevant information regarding their performance while in office.
Use these resources to get to know each candidate better. Find out which ones are truly worthy of your vote.
Once you have selected your bets, go a step further.
Help spread the word about these candidates by answering the poll located on the upper right hand corner of each candidate’s page and by sharing your response via Facebook, Twitter, and other social media.
If you changed your mind and want to cancel your vote, click again on the button you originally voted on to cancel your previous vote.
Remember that change begins with you.
Start that ripple of change today. Help the country vote smart.
