Cocoy Dayao is a participant of the Foreign Press Center “2012 Election Night Program” from October 31-November 8, 2012. We are thankful to the US Embassy for giving Blog Watch this opportunity through Cocoy’s representation.
We are proud that Cocoy is the only Philippine representative to take part in this and most probably the first blogger from the Philippines. While in the USA, Cocoy will participate in many activities such as lectures and observation tours :
Introduction to U.S. Elections – Voting Procedures and Laws David Scanlan, New Hampshire Deputy Secretary of State
Election 2012 Campaign Themes and New Hampshire Voters Dante Scala, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University
Democratic Party Fundraising and Election 2012 Economic Issues Gary Hirshberg, former CEO of Stonyfield Farm and major Democratic Party fundraiser
Site visits to campaign offices
Presidential Polling and U.S. Elections Andy Smith, Director of the University of New Hampshire Polling Center
Access to Voting and Civil Rights Issues Albert Scherr, Professor at the University of New Hampshire School of Law and Board Member of the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union
The Senior Vote and Community Volunteering Betsy Hatfield, Director of Grandmothers for Obama
Female Involvement in Politics and Reflections on Governor Romney Speakers from the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus
The Use of Social Media in Modern Campaigning and Voter Education The Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University
Cocoy will transfer from New Hampshire to Boston on November 4. He will cover the Romney-Ryan Election Night 2012 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center on November 6. Upon Cocoy’s return to the Philippines, we will all meet up with him so he can share his experience and perhaps use some ideas if applicable for our own 2013 #juanvote election watch .
Follow @cocoy on Twitter as he live tweets from Ground Zero. For the duration of his trip, he will also use the hashtag #2012USelectionsph
Blog Watch will be doing a Google Hangout with our embedded Blogwatcher, Cocoy Dayao, today, Nov. 3 (Saturday), at 10:30 AM (Manila time), 10:30 PM (New Hampshire time).
Do try to join us at that time and let’s hear what Cocoy has experienced so far covering the U.S. elections. We will be using Google Hangout on Air via YouTube so that the public can join us. Link will be given tomorrow on this Google+ page.

I am an advocate. I am NOT neutral. I will NOT give social media mileage to members of political clans, epal, a previous candidate for the same position and those I believe are a waste of taxpayers' money.
I do not support or belong to any political party. I was part of accredited media covering the Office of the Vice President and Leni Robredo as she ran as a presidential aspirant in the 2022 National and local elections.
On August 5, 2021, YouTube announced that I was selected as one of 50 Program participants of its Creator Program for Independent Journalists
She was a Senior Consultant for ALL media engagements for the PCOO-led Committee on Media Affairs & Strategic Communications (CMASC) under the ASEAN 2017 National Organizing Council from January 4 -July 5, 2017. Having been an ASEAN advocate since 2011, she has written extensively about the benefits of the ASEAN community and as a region of opportunities on Blog Watch and aboutmyrecovery.com.
