Automation is not the only thing that's new about today's national elections. Via technology and the internet, voters can now do more than just vote --
We can now play as reporters and let the media and all Pinoys the world-over know of election-related problems and incidences happening in our precincts and localities. Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter serve as platforms for information sharing on this crucial moment in Philippine history.
Here are some Facebook and Twitter channels and handles where we could send our reports:
Twitter - #halalan
Twitter - #juanvote
Twitter - #eleksyon
Twitter - #eleksyon2010
Boto Mo, i-Patrol Mo Facebook Fan Page
BotoPatrollers Twitter Page
ABS-CBN Halalan 2010 Official Twitter Page
GMA News TV Twitter Page
TP friends, please don't let minor hassles lead to disenfranchisement. Let's all practice our right to vote! Let's all be more patient with the new system. This is the first automated elections in our country so glitches are to be expected.
Stay tuned for updates to the list. If you know of other handles and channels were voters could send in their reports, please leave a comment including links below.
Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
