Vote Pilipinas is a non-profit, non-partisan online and offline information campaign aimed at mobilizing Filipinos to register to vote for the upcoming national and local 2022 elections.

It is quite symbolic that today’s launch is exactly one year to the day we exercise our right to vote on May 9, 2022.
