As the Philippine’s national elections take place, Magsaysay, through its corporate social responsibility arm, Homer Foundation, Inc. (HFI), held a series of voters’ education program in Manila, Visayas and Mindanao.

The program, aptly called MAGVOTE, reminded Magsaysay employees, crew members and allottees about the importance of their participation in the electoral process—from voting and validation to monitoring the election count. Invited speakers from the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) and the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting gave lectures on the basic do’s and don’ts inside polling precincts during the election, and other related information about the use of vote-counting machines.

MAGVOTE was held in Cebu on April 9, Davao on April 10, Bacolod on April 16, Iloilo on April 17 and Manila on April 28—all of which ended with mock elections for President, Vice-President, Party List and Senators. A total of 1,930 crew and allottees participated in the MAGVOTE event, which also incorporated the Crew and Allottees’ Day and the Magsaysay Multi-Purpose Cooperative’s General Assembly. Additionally, job fairs were organized in Bacolod, Cebu and Davao where a total of 1,414 applicants attended.

MAGVOTE is one of HFI’s CSR programs that started in 2010. The program aims to educate, empower and engage Magsaysay People in social and national issues. This year’s MAGVOTE was done in cooperation with Magsaysay’s Crew and Family Affairs Department.​
