Today, we headed to the Philippine Embassy here in Doha to exercise our right as a Filipino, thru absentee voting. Everything went well; starting from the checking of our names on the register, handing of ballots and explaining to us how it should be filled out, the machine reading and counting our votes, and lastly the printing of the receipt which showed us the candidates we voted for. The whole voting process lasted for about 10 – 15 minutes, since there’s not a lot of people in there by that time. Based on some writings I’ve read, there are some issues faced by our fellow OFWs, such as receipt printed is not the same as the one they’ve chosen, there are some candidates whose names are highlighted on the ballot and other stuff. This is the reason why I observed while inside the voting room, and to my relief, none of these happened, which I am hoping will also be the case on the election day.

There are plenty of accommodations when travelling around the Philippines, but not many do timeshares. Timeshares can be great when vacationing in the Philippines due to their space and ammenities. If you own a timeshare you no longer want, a timeshare exit company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Omni Ellis can help.
