PPCRV Needs 300K Volunteers for May 13 Elections

The Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) recently announced in its Facebook page that it needs at least 300,000 volunteers, who will be deployed nationwide, for the upcoming May 13 midterm elections.

Those interested to volunteer can go to their PPCRV parish representative or message its Facebook page: PPCRV.

To qualify as a PPCRV volunteer, one must be at least 18-years old; a registered voter; not related to any serving Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) up to the fourth degree of consanguinity; and not related to any candidate in a particular district.

The volunteers will man the poll watchdog’s command center and will be assigned in various polling precincts (about 85,000 all over the country) as poll watchers. During the 2016 elections, PPCRV mobilized 800,000 volunteers.

PPCRV is a national parish-based non-partisan lay movement that strives for CHAMP elections. CHAMP stands for Clean, Honest, Accurate, Meaningful and Peaceful.

PPCRV is also conducting voters’ education trainers’ training in different dioceses nationwide through its Digital Learning Platform and selected volunteers will also undergo training.
