With the significant changes that Cebuanos have encountered in this year’s BSKE, transitioning from automated elections to returning to “manual” voting, where you need to manually write the names of your preferred candidates for the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan leadership, Cebuanos have clearly made their decision.

From finding the BSKE 2023 less crowded and easier to navigate, to knowing the nooks and crannies in order to finish your voting time to 3 minutes; may this positive momentum continue into upcoming elections, leading to more efficient, transparent, and inclusive democratic processes in the Philippines.
