ABS-CBN rolls out digital tools for May polls
Broadcast firm ABS-CBN has launched new microsites for its Halalan 2013 and the Bayan Mo iPatrol Mo (BMPM) initiatives, along with the upgraded version of the Comelec Halalan mobile application.
The Halalan 2013 microsite contains election-related information and will serve as the home of ABS-CBN News #Halalan 2013 coverage.
Netizens can get election updates as it happens and also get to view candidate profiles of hopefuls for the Senate and the House of Representatives, including party-lists.
The microsite also features polls, reveals who are the most-searched election personalities, and gives a rundown of netizens’ opinions on popular social media sites.
The Bayan Mo iPatrol Mo microsite, on the other hand, houses BMPM contributions that netizens can comment on and share to their own personal social networking accounts.
It will also contain information on how Filipinos can patrol their votes as Bayan Patrollers through text, email, online, or on mobile.
One way to report election-related anomalies and wrongdoings is by using the BMPM feature in the Comelec Halalan application which was recently upgraded to its second version to offer mobile users a different browsing experience.
In the improved Comelec app, users can view candidate profiles and party-list groups, make a shortlist of his or her bets via the “My Ballot”, view a list of Comelec offices, and go to mycomelec.tv website with a click of a button.
The Comelec Halalan application is available free for download on iPhones, Android phones and tablets, and Windows 8 phones.
