juanvote for 2010 Philippine Elections

Saturday, May 08, 2010 Posted by Vernon Go , , , 1 comment

#juanvote for 2010 Philippine Elections is the first ever social media coverage of the Philippine Elections by Filipino citizens. The POC, Blogwatch.PH, 100ARAW.com and Global News Network (GNN), together with the Philippine Online Chronicles, Reklamotion, Code Radio, Vote Report Philippines 2010, Worker's Electoral Watch, Gameops, TXTPower, RockEd Radio, Cebu Bloggers Society, and Global Destiny will make this dream happen.

The country's internet users have come together to form a network to keep a close watch on the May 10, 2010 elections. The name #juanvote is used because, the network calls on citizens to use hi-tech means to expose and hopefully thwart electoral fraud and violence.

#juanvote challenges all Filipino netizens to be champions of Honest, Orderly and Peaceful Elections by taking action on May 10. This May 10 we would have two “firsts”: The first nationwide automated elections, and the first social media coverage to be mounted by net/citizens.

We must not just vote: We must use all our powers as social media users to help others vote and to guard the vote. Armed with cellphones, digital cameras, and social media tools, we not just as bloggers and internet users can make a difference for our country.

#juanvote is the hashtag and name of a network of social media and internet users and communities who wish to take action for free and fair elections on May 10, 2010.
