TFC’s #Vote4ASelfieWorthyPH campaign is in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs Overseas Voting Secretariat (DFA-OVS) and the Commission on Elections Office of the Overseas Voting.
It aims to promote overseas voting by making the voice of overseas Filipinos heard in the coming elections.
They post selfies of themselves against a backdrop or scenario they want improved for the country.
According to the DFA-OVS, there are over 1.23 million registered voters for the 2016 national elections.
Overseas Filipinos can vote from April 9 to May 9 Manila time.
Before exercising their right to vote, registered voters can check their names on the Certified List of Voters at comelec.gov.ph.
Voting will be conducted at the nearest Philippine Embassy, Consulate General, mission, or Manila Economic and Cultural office (MECO).
Meantime, deadline of requests for mailing of ballots is on April 22. To vote, overseas Filipinos just need to bring their valid passport and ID.
