Last minute

Everyone knows this already, but just in case you’re one of those who don’t know …

On May 13, bawal ang:

  • Campaigning – which is defined as any act designed to promote the election or defeat of a particular candidate/s;
  • Selling, furnishing, offering, buying, serving, or taking intoxicating liquor – also known as the liquor ban; and
  • Giving, accepting free transportation food, drinks, and things of value

On May 14, bawal ang:

All of the above, PLUS

  • Soliciting votes or undertaking any propaganda for or against any candidate or any political party within the polling
    place or within thirty (30) meters thereof – which makes most people think that if partisans distribute their sample ballots outside the school where voting is taking place, then there is no violation. I disagree. Those who distribute their sample ballots in the polling places, on the other hand, are still campaigning which, lo and behold!, is also prohibited.
  • Voting more than once or in substitution of another – also known as flying voting and identity theft
  • Holding of fairs, cockfights, boxing, horse races or similar; sports; and
  • Opening of booths or stalls for the sale, etc., of merchandise or refreshments within a radius of thirty meters from the polling place

  1. Opening of booths or stalls for the sale, etc., of merchandise or refreshments within a radius of thirty meters from the polling place

    I think there are several cases of violation of this provision. But I dont think anybody minds. Sarap ata ng squid balls at sago.😀
