Why I did not vote today

Because I am not on the registered voter's list anymore. :(

I know I voted back in 2004, and I only missed the 2007 elections due to morning sickness.  So, I don't know why the government decided to remove me from the official voter's list.

Of course I only found out about this automatic-removal-of-name-from-list policy last 2010.  Out of the blue, I checked my name to see which precinct I was registered to, and was surprised and disappointed to see that I cannot vote anymore because I failed to vote (daw) for the last two elections.  Which irked me because I know for a fact that people who have been dead for decades still have their names on the list.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.  I should have registered a long time ago.  BUT,

1.  I'm tamad to do so.

2.  I don't like any of the candidates running.  Except for Bam.  And that's  only 1 out of 13 (or 12 ba) reasons for me to go out and vote. So no.  Not enough motivation.

3.  Reading stories like this.

I probably will not register again for the 2016 elections because hey, I heard Kris Aquino is running.  The elections are becoming a joke.
