The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

My Voting Experience

By: Bryan Lu

On the day of election, my dad and mom went with me to E. Rodriguez High School, QC. It took us few minutes to find our precinct. Lots of people waited for their turn to vote. But we’re allowed to immediately vote because of special lane for the special people like me.

By checking the internet, I was able to download a sample ballot as my guide in choosing the candidates. I prepared my “kodigo” (list) a day in advance and wrote whom I should vote.

Voting time was a fun for me. It only took around a minute for me to choose the candidates because the “kodigo” I brought with me inside precinct.

While I was shading the ovals, I hoped that all of the candidates I chose would win. Afterwards, I put my ballot inside PCOS machine. I felt so happy when my vote has been counted because there’s a message that reads “Congratulations, you vote has been counted.”

It is important to vote because it is a responsibility of every citizen to choose the right leaders. Wrong leaders may lead to many problems like corruptions and crimes. Our country will be weak and there will be more poor people.
