3rd World Election Day

Was able to vote for the barangay elections.

Here's what it's like to vote in a third world island like the Philippines.

Hot, messy and crowded. The corridors were really jam packed.

In our barangay, it only took us 5 minutes to vote (even in the last presidential elections), but I heard that some of my schoolmates had to line up for 3 to 5 hours just to vote.

I don' know how much change a barangay election can bring to our country since you basically vote the people you or your parents know.

But I like participating in a bureaucratic exercises so here we are.
