Suffrage

THE 1987 CONSTITUTION OF THE REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES

Article 5:
Suffrage


SEC. 1.
Suffrage may be exercised by all citizens of the Philippines not otherwise disqualified by law, who are at least eighteen years of age, and who shall have resided in the Philippines for at least one year and in the place wherein they propose to vote for at least six months immediately preceding the election. No literacy, property, or other substantive requirement shall be imposed on the exercise of suffrage.


>Basically suffrage = right to vote. It is clearly written here that there are only 2 requirements in order to vote, that you should be at least 18 years old and have resided for at least 1 year in the place where you will vote. So have you registered? Let us exercise our right of suffrage and vote in the coming presidential elections in 2010.
