MANILA, Philippines – An election official reminded the youth that their nine million voted had the power to influence the results of the 2010 elections.

“Nine million votes from the youth can spell the future of our country so the youth must recognize the importance of their role in the 2010 elections,” Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rene Sarmiento said in a forum at the De La Salle University in Manila.

“I dream of the day when the students and the youth are the change that we want to see in the society. Let us be the change in our country when we register for and vote in the 2010 elections,” he said.

Sarmiento urged the youth top beat the October 31 deadline to resister to vote in May 2010.

Brother Bernard Oca, DLSU vice chancellor, also urged students to register and choose good leaders like ailing former President and democracy icon Corazon Aquino.
