Volunteers are staple sight during elections. Election 2019 is no exception. TV networks and online news platforms always mention individuals and organizations that provide voluntary service during this crucial event for Filipinos. It is also important to recognize the dedication of teachers, government employees, and uniformed personnel for their service during the elections.

Some of them have to put aside personal needs and priorities just to ensure that the elections will run as smooth, orderly, and peaceful as possible. The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) mobilized volunteers to serve as members of electoral boards, poll watchers, and canvassers at the local level, and to ensure safety in all precincts. Volunteers were also organized by private organizations such as the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) which deployed around 300,000 volunteers for this year’s local and national poll.

The volunteers deserve all our thanks for helping us fulfill our responsibility as Filipino citizens to choose the leaders that we want to govern our country. So thank you, volunteers. ###VF
