“All the information you need to know about the elections will be available online on the ABS-CBN News Halalan 2013 microsite. We invite everyone to become partners with us in patrolling these elections through the new BMPM microsite. We have also made it easier for the public to get information and share information through the newly improved COMELEC Halalan 2013 application,” said Anna Rodriguez, head of News Digital Media.
The Halalan 2013 microsite contains all election-related information and will serve as the home of ABS-CBN News #Halalan 2013 coverage. Netizens can get the latest election updates as it happens straight from the country’s most trusted news organization in just one click and also get to view candidate profiles of hopefuls for the Senate and the House of Representatives, including party-lists.
Social pulse is also within reach as the microsite also features polls, reveals who are the most-searched election personalities, and gives a rundown of netizens’ opinions on popular social media sites.
The Bayan Mo iPatrol Mo microsite, on the other hand, houses all BMPM contributions that netizens can comment on and share to their own personal social networking accounts. It will also educate Filipinos on how they can patrol their votes as Bayan Patrollers through text, email, online, or on mobile.
One of the easiest ways to report election-related anomalies and wrongdoings is by using the BMPM feature in the COMELEC Halalan application which was recently upgraded to its second version to offer mobile users a different browsing experience, loaded with new features usable for voters.
In the improved Comelec app, users can view candidate profiles and party-list groups, make a shortlist of his or her bets via the “My Ballot”, view a list of COMELEC offices, and instantly go to mycomelec.tv website with a click of a button.
The COMELEC Halalan application is available free for download on iPhones, Android phones and tablets, and Windows 8 phones.
