Local elections 2016: Know your candidates and localities on Rappler
MANILA, Philippines – Candidates for local positions will tell you that 45 days are not enough to comb every barangay, shake hands with every registered voter, and explain plans for their constituents – that is, if they have any well-thought-out ones to begin with. (They even lost one campaigning day since the start of the campaign period fell on March 25, Good Friday, when electioneering was prohibited.)
Voters, however, can learn a lot about the candidates and the issues they should address in their municipalities, cities, congressional districts, and provinces in those 6 weeks. #PHvote, Rappler’s comprehensive coverage of the 2016 Philippine elections, is here to make that possible.
- List of candidates for every position
