We Hold Elections Inside Schools in the Philippines

During election day, Filipinos have the opportunity to visit public schools because voting precincts are located inside classrooms. It is therefore highly likely that Filipino voters are aware of the conditions of public schools in the Philippines. And some are a bit surprised to see two different classrooms. In the photographs below, Senator Bam Aquino (left) and Bongbong Marcos (right) vote in an elementary classroom in Tarlac and in Ilocos Norte, respectively. Some people could see a difference between the two classrooms.



Here is the current president, also voting in an elementary school in Davao City.



So Filipinos had a chance to see their schools. Public school teachers serve as election officials in the Philippines so Filipinos not only have seen the classrooms but also the people who take care of our young. We entrust to these teachers the future of our children and yes, we also entrust to these teachers our votes. The question remains however, whether we actually see.
