Stuck In The Province

I'm supposed to wake up early today, but it didn't happen. Wake up early and vote early, that was my main goal today. Sad to say, I slept late and obviously, I woke up late.

I thought the election process would be that fast, but it wasn't. I arrived in the precinct at around11:30 am and guess what, my priority number is 503, men! When I checked my precinct and asked the person near the door on what number are they serving now, he said "345 nice", he knows my name? how come? i don't know him? Men! that would be ages away from my number. I decided to go home and ate lunch. I surf the net for a while to check some emails and headed back to my election precinct. When I arrived there, I then asked the person near the door for the number, it's a lady this time, again she knows my name, "407 nice". That would be less than a hundred people before me. I decided to wait patiently.

Suddenly, a person came to me. I then recognized her to be one of my schoolmates in college. She asked for my precinct number. "it's 10A, y?" I replied. She immediately told me something very helpful, she said that there's no need for me to wait for my number to be called, ill just position myself near the door and tell the election officer that my precinct is 10A and he would let me in. hmmmm... intriguing... why not give it a try. I did what she told me. Whoah! the election officer recognized me. "What's your precinct number nice?" he said. Honestly I don't know him. I told him it's 10A. Immediately, he let me in and guided me where to go. No sweat!

After careful thinking and shading, I finally endured the voting process and casted my very precious vote. I then had my ballot feed inside the PCOS machine. CONGRATULATIONS! YOUR VOTE HAS BEEN COUNTED. I had my finger marked with indelible ink then.

Im so happy, it's still 2:59 in the afternoon and I could still go back to the city. It's still very early so I decided to go online and post my voting success. I didn't notice the time, it's already 3:30pm. I hurried up and fix my things. When I arrived in the bus station, a lot of passengers are there waiting. One of the passengers told me that have been for 2 hours already yet no bus came. What?!! this can't be. I need to go back to the city. I have a lot of things to do! men! I waited for about an hour and 30 minutes. A bus coming for the city arrived and the conductor told us that the next trip for the city would early morning tomorrow. No choice! I went back home. In short, I'm stuck in the province. Though there's no problem in it, but I need to be online and update my online job, and the internet connection here in the province is making me sick. It's so so slow!

I just hope I could wake up early tomorrow, for sure I would be fighting over seats for the huge number passengers going back to the city. I truly hate standing in the bus. Wish me luck.

Precint No. 0010A - # 180

Today would be one of the important days in the Philippines. Filipinos of legal age will exercise their right to vote. I'm now in my hometown to vote.

There has been problems arising for this automated elections... scary! there has been doubts for this election to succeed. Philippine politics has been known to be very dirty and bloody. In fact, at the start of filing of the candidacy, there has been a fierce and merciless killing of numerous people in Maguindanao. It has been followed by various politics-related violence.

They told me that today's election won't take long because it is already computerized. Well, they are all wrong, everyone were not used to it since it is the first time for the Filipino voters to cast votes in an automated machine. The process is really, really slow. I arrived there at around 11:30am yet my priority number is already 503! Whew! I went back home to eat lunch and just returned there after several minutes. Good thing Precinct 10A has less voters and the election officer standing in front door controlling the traffic knows me! He recognized my face and my name and let me in (singit!) nyahahaha. At exactly 2:55 pm in my clock, I had successfully casted my vote.

We'll just pray that everything will turn out well. God Bless and Good Luck everyone!
