Remembering the Days

Well, Presidential Election in the US is coming up. Actually, it will be next year by November and I can't help but excited to cast my first vote. When I was in PI, I served during the election . I was assigned as a BEI-Board of Election Inspectors sometimes as a third member and poll clerk but, mostly as a chairman.

The voters are usually very intimidating especially those who don't know me being a teacher in the school. We conduct the election in the school classrooms and every precincts, there are 3 BEI assigned. The chairman has the highest authority inside the precinct. I stand 5'0 ft and as long as I answered all their questions and erase the doubts in their minds, they will settle accordingly. Inside the polling place, BEI's have the power to maintain peace and order and if there are nuisance, we have the power to issue an arrest until the election is done at 3PM.

I like being the Chairman of the BEI because I can organize the flow of the activity inside our precinct. From the preparation, casting of votes, tallying and counting of votes up to the submission of the ballot box to the city hall, most of the time very tiring but, fun to do. BEI's always have a positive attitude serving for the country and I did! Bless the heart of all the teachers who are assigned as BEI's during the National Election of the Philippines.
