MayWard takes on early voter campaign

Edward Barber and MayMay Entrata

HERE’S some exciting news for you voters: It’s now less than two years until the presidential election. Here’s more exciting news for us workers: It’s certain we’ll have a holiday in May 2022.

So if you want to join in on the fun, just head to the nearest Comelec office and register. My chismosa friend proudly informed me through Viber that her daughters finally trooped to their city hall, in matching face masks and the latest face shields they ordered online, and even saw her neighbor in the premises. Sadly for her, her daughters never got to know why their neighbor was also in city hall but knowing her, she could only have wished it was due to something scandalous so that she would have something to report to me. Still, she was able to slip in that her daughters were wearing the latest Nike Jordans and even sent a screenshot of her Instagram post of her daughters. I just replied that, yes, I saw that post so that she would get the hint she need not waste data to send it to me.

But actually I’m happy for her daughters—and I’m also happy that young stars MayMay Entrata and Edward Barber also went to their local precinct to register. MayMay and Edward form the MayWard loveteam and they are both products of Pinoy Big Brother with the former bagging the grand prize. Since then, they have made a number of movies and TV shows, and even landed a couple of endorsements along the way.

The young stars posted a picture on Instagram to their followers of them filling up the necessary forms. “Mag pa-rehistro na para makaboto,” MayMay told her fans and followers. “Registered to vote. Make sure you do, too!” Edward posted. “Let’s change the course of our nation and write OUR OWN history.” He even included the hashtag “#40MStrong” as well, which refers to the estimated 40 million youth who will be eligible to vote in the next elections.

Meanwhile, TV host Robi Domingo accompanied his co-PBB alums and posted, as well, referring to how fans would vote on who should stay or not in the Big Brother House.  “Ngayon sila naman ang boboto para sa kinabukasan,” he said. “Ikaw, nakapag-register ka na ba?”

They made it all so simple and, based on my registration experience eons ago, it really is. The Comelec even posted guidelines in their social-media accounts with specific instructions on how to register and these are: download the application form and fill up three copies but do not sign them yet; go to the nearest Comelec office and make sure to observe proper guidelines, such as wearing of face mask, shield, disinfection and social distancing, etc.

So, what are you waiting for guys? Go out, register and make your vote count.
