Download #juanvote election monitoring Android app via @instapatrol

The #juanvote was the first social media coverage by citizens in the 2010 elections. We will use the same hashtag for the 2013 elections. To support this hashatag is a mobile android app at Google Play store via Kwan Initiatives’ InstaPatrol.

InstaPatrol allows you to ” Unleash The Inner Reporter in You. Turn Your Mobile Phone Into a Tool for Change!”. When you log in using your Twitter accounts you can easily tag the respective Twitter accounts of the following agencies in your post:

When you select blogwatchdotph/juanvote, your post will appear in our @blogwatchdotph twitter timeline with a #juanvote hashtag. However , in our Blog Watch Facebook page, your photo won’t be automatically shown in our timeline until we approve it.

Aside from @blogwatchdotph , you will also have the opportunity to send a report direct to the relevant government agency or media outlet of your choice:

ANTI EPAL – “Epal Moves” by politicians – mostly posters/tarps bearing their faces or names!
MMDA – road accidents, traffic violations, flood, lazy or corrupt enforcers
DSWD – street children, prostitution, vagrants
DPWH – road problems, potholes (lubak)
DILG – report a problem that your mayor should know about!
PAGASA – live storm report or storm damage, flooding
Phil. Red Cross – disaster areas, flooding, rescue request
GMA7 YouScoop – media
TV5 JournalisMO – media
Alabang Bulletin – media, reports on Alabang and its surrounding areas
DOTC (MRT3) – anything MRT related
Skyway – accident or traffic situation on the Skyway
DOH – health hazards (ex. dirty palengke, health center problems, etc.)
Maynilad – pipe burst or leaks

Note: If you had InstaPatrol installed previously, just uninstall the current version that you have on your phone and re-download the app on Google Play Store.

Start using the #juanvote app to monitor national and local candidates who might take advantage of All Saints and All Souls Day by putting up streamers and tarpaulin in cemeteries.

Chairman Sixto Brillantes says “it’s always a problem because they can always take advantage of such fact that there’s no premature campaigning. We don’t have a law.”

Republic Act 9369 states that: “Any person, who files his certificate of candidacy, shall only be considered as a candidate at the start of the campaign period”.

Remember that our candidates should respect the spirit of the law.

Note: If you had InstaPatrol installed previously, just uninstall the current version that you have on your phone and re-download the app on Google Play Store.

Blog Watch is not affiliated with any political group or party, and does its best to remain non-partisan by publishing, to the extent possible, all sides of an issue. But because Blog Watchers are also voters and independent thinkers, our writers naturally have their own views and biases on different issues.

For transparency, Blog Watchers are obliged to disclose in their profiles any close affiliations with a politician, high government official or political party.

Blog Watch does not solicit, ask for, demand or receive any financial or material remuneration for involvement in its activities, whether in cash or in kind. Blog Watch operates solely on the resources of its members and the sponsorship of individuals and institutions which identities are appropriately and fully disclosed.
