Your responsibility does not end in voting.
 
This is what the Commission on Elections (Comelec) reminded the students of Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU) who promised to go out and vote in the upcoming May 13 polls.
 
“Go out and vote because this is the only right that we have that cannot be taken away from us… pero yung obligasyon natin, hindi nagtatapos sa pagboto,” Comelec information officer Leo Lim said.
 
During the Yahoo! Purple Thumb senatorial forum, Lim encouraged students to remain vigilant and take the lead in reporting violations come poll day.
 
“Magmasid at mag-ulat. Tulad sa ating mga kandidato, alam nila kung ano ang pwede at hindi di nila dapat gawin at tingnan po natin ang mangyayari sa araw ng eleksyon,” Lim said.
 
“Kung mayroon po tayong violations na makikita sa araw ng eleksyon, mag-ulat,” he noted.
 
Zambales Rep. Maria Milagros “Mitos” Magsaysay, former Senator Ernesto Maceda, and former Manila councilor Greco Belgica attended the senatorial debate held at Escaler Hall on Monday.
