Here are the photos Mindanaoan (me!) took during the recent Cagayan de Oro City, Mindanao leg of the Register and Vote (RV) Campaign – specifically during the two students fora held at the Mindanao University of Science and Technology and Cagayan de Oro College – both Cagayan de Oro City schools.
Mindanaoan was privileged enough to have accompanied the Team Kiko group last July 30, 2009. This RV campaign, which is spearheaded by Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, aims to draw out 5 to 9 million first time voters, encourage them to register at the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) and then come May 2010, exercise their right to suffrage.
Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, AKBAYAN Partylist Rep. Risa Hontiveros, former Bukidnon Rep. Neric Acosta, BAYAN Partylist Rep. Teddy Casino and author Atty. Alex Lacson led the fora.
By the way — Rock the Vote, which is a free musical cum advocacy concert, is also part of the Register and Vote Campaign. Read more about the highly successful Cagayan de Oro Rock the Vote 2009 show, which featured Hale, Spongecola and Luke Mejares.
