Youth volunteers from various Rotaract Club members and willing family members of LJ Sumulong, who is running for councilor for the second district of Antipolo City, set up a Voters Assistance booth beside KFC Antipolo in front of Antipolo Cathedral and Sumulong Park.
The volunteer group set up a booth with a laptop with wifi connection ready to answer queries of passersby and help them determine where their precincts are located which will make it easier to vote on election day May 9, 2022.
“At the start of the campaign period, we volunteered to actively campaign for Sir LJ by going house to house every weekend. As the election approaches, We and Sir LJ took the initiative to provide voters assistance for the citizens of Antipolo,” said Mary Louisiannah D. Protacio.
Protacio is a senior high school student of University of Santo Tomas.
Others with her are Sophia A. Sumulong (St. Paul College Pasig), Jerryl Cheska M. Jeongco (Miriam College), Jose Luis D. Protacio III (Ateneo De Manila Junior High School), Beatriz Anne M. Pearson (LPU – Manila), Miguel Angelo B. Diago (ACLC ANTIPOLO), Augustine Janiola (Our Lady of Peace School), and Miguelito Jose Montines (University of Santo Tomas – President of Rotaract Club of Antipolo City).
Also with the group are Christian B. Protacio (La Salle Antipolo) and Renee Alyanna Sanchez (University of Santo Tomas).
“Our booth can be found in the KFC parking lot in front of the Antipolo Cathedral. Through this assistance, we provide voters with their precinct number and cluster group to hassle them less come election day,” said Protacio.
The interest and participation of the youth sector in the election is indeed an encouraging sign. It means that they are concerned with the future of the city, the welfare of its inhabitants.
The youth want to participate actively in choosing the right leaders and public officials who will chart the future of the community.
