07 April 2016 – The Philippine Consulate General in Vancouver held a briefing for the members of the local media at the Consulate office on 06 April 2016 to enlist their support in conducting a massive information campaign to inform the Filipino community about the Overseas Voting for the purpose of the 2016 National Elections.
Consul General Neil Frank Ferrer highlighted the growing number of Overseas Filipinos and that their active involvement and participation in the overseas voting could be a significant factor during the elections. He pointed as an example, the huge jump in the number of registered overseas voters in the Consulate’s jurisdiction from only 10,364 in 2013 to 33,361 at present.
Consul General Ferrer mentioned that the Philippine Government continues to find ways to make it easier and more convenient to vote such as the adoption of Postal Voting and the Automated Election System (AES). The Consulate has also scheduled a number of Field Voting activities to reach out to more voters, including Filipino seafarers on board ships calling in Vancouver, during the 30-day overseas voting period which starts on April 9, 2016. - END
