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.
