PH Elections 2022: Here’s How to Create Your Kodigo for the May Polls

This article is part of The Beat Asia’s coverage of the Philippines’ 2022 elections. To see the rest of our elections-related stories, click here.

Filipino voters will head to polling precincts on May 9 to decide on the next batch of leaders who will help shape the country in the next six years. With dozens of circles to shade beside sometimes unfamiliar names, voting can be overwhelming.

Voters education initiative kodigo.me came up with a create-your-own election cheat sheet to help you decide ahead of the May 9 polls.

Once you go to their website, you will be redirected to a page mirroring the actual ballot. Just click on the circle beside the name of your bet, from president down to board members. There is also a search function if you are too lazy to go through each name (the senatorial lineup alone has 64 aspirants). Skip any post if you want to abstain. You can also undervote.

This cheat sheet counts the number of election candidates to avoid overvoting. You can view how many more seats are left per post beside the search icon.

For local positions, just enter your province and city or municipality, and the site will automatically generate the candidates running in your area. Easy-peasy right?

Once you are done, you will have the option to save your kodigo as an image or print it. You can also copy it as text and save on your phone, as well as share to your social media friends!

It is best to have your kodigo printed because while cellphones are allowed inside the precincts, you could be flagged for taking pictures of your accomplished ballot. Remember: Taking a snap of your ballot is an election offense, which is in place to prevent vote buying.
