2013 Senatoriables Poll now open – vote here

welcome to The Presidentiables Blog 2013 Senatoriables Poll!

the list only has the major senatoriables running for the 2013 election. the list is short of the 30+ official candidates for senators. the pictures of the senatoriables with different sizes and shapes were hardly chosen as they were picked up from whatever our friend Google Image gave us.

this is an unscientific poll given that no random sampling has been done and there was no vetting of respondents. anyone with an internet connection can cast their vote in this poll. obviously only those with an internet connection are the respondents in this poll which is hardly reflective of the actual voting population.

but candidates and supporters can use the results for bragging rights.

they can also use the poll results as a gauge of the size of the support candidates are getting out of netizens. respondents who vote here are social media users and they can be harnessed to promote the candidacy of senatoriables. as it has been shown in the most recent months, Philippine netizens who are in social media is a very potent force who can influence national life and behavior or attitudes of national leaders. a candidate who gets higher votes than others here can say they have bigger netizen support. the question then is how can this candidate harness the netizen support for more support in the internet and how to make this spill over to traditional media and real world voting by election time.

make your vote count! you will be given only 12 votes in this list. come back here from time to time and find out who is being chosen by readers of this blog.

thank you all and good luck, senatoriables.


please read comments for updates in this poll.


notes :

  • the software will allow you to vote for a maximum of only 12 candidates.
  • after you cast your vote, you can click “view results” if you are not taken to the results portion
  • poll opened on february 16, 2013
  • poll will close on day before election day
  • follow us on twitter -> @wawam

note that the pictures here are arranged in alphabetical order based on their first name. that is nearly scientific.

    update as of february 20, 2013:

    > an impressive 2,767 votes have been cast in just 4 days since the poll was opened
    > a large portion of the voters did not complete all the 12 elective posts for senator
    > this poll is getting a lot of re-tweets and mentions in facebook

    all voters are allowed to vote ONLY ONCE. the software actually blocks multiple votes made by the same person. thus, supporters of candidates will not be able to manipulate the number of votes.

    also, the higher the number of votes, the more difficult it will be to manipulate the results.

    invite your friends and relatives to vote in this poll to push up the results of your favorite candidates. previous polls in this blog had reached many thousands of votes, this one for sure will achieve the same.
