    Hi po..question lng po.is it allowed po nasa loob ng canvasing room ang parent ng isang candidate during canvassing? Thanks po

  2. Sir goodmorning po.. question po..do we allow the grade 10 and grade 12 to cast their votes. Since they are leaving the school in few months time??
    Maaari po kasing makaapekto sa turn out ang kanilang votes samantalang wala na po sila sa school next school year..and the new sets.of officers will assume their office next school year …some schools are doing this practice not letting the graduating and moving up student to votes
