Rappler, Twitter release #PHVote candidate emojis

MANILA, Philippines – The elections are nearly upon us! Do you know who you're voting for?

In a bid to help Twitter users show their support for their favorite candidate, Rappler, in partnership with Twitter, presents #PHVote emojis: one of the easiest ways to show your support for your presidential candidate!

All you have to do is tweet using #PHVote + candidate's surname to support your presidential bet, and the emoji of the candidate will show up beside the hashtag.

PHVote Challenge

Haven't decided on who you're voting for yet? Join the PHVote Challenge and we'll help you sort out which candidate is the most inclined to champion the issues important to you!

Through our interactive meme generator, Rappler's readers have shared the issues that are most important to them. They're funny because they're true.

Now, with just a little over two months before we cast our votes, it's time to discuss the goals that we want our future leaders to pursue.

We challenge you to take part in building a vision board for the country. For you, what would make a better Philippines? What should be high on our leaders' agenda? What are the concrete actions that you can commit to doing in order to be part of the change?

As we get closer to election day, select your gut issue from our list of 6 (Corruption, Social Inequality, OFWs, Climate Change and Disasters, Foreign Policy, Peace Process in Mindanao) and tell us why the next administration should focus on it and what you want to see them do.

Join our weekly #PHVote Twitter conversation as we take on the issues and discuss how the next administration can best address them for the sake of the nation.
