What is Upvote?

This is the campaign of the UPLB – USC for the USC-CSC


elections 2011. Every year, students are encouraged to choose who they
want to vote both in the university level (University Student Council)
and their respective college student council level.

This year, it is a milestone for our university to take part in the


first automated elections. This automation aims to:
• Minimize the specifics of the electoral process in terms of time
and manpower
• Avoid chances of cheating in the elections
• Increase voter’s turnout by coming up with a more creative way
to gauge the students to vote

Why vote?

All students are entitled to their right to suffrage, as guaranteed by the


UPLB Student Council Constitution. Going out to vote, despite the
hectic academic and extra-curricular schedule, is an exercise of the core
principle of democracy—participative governance. It is from the
students where the elected student leaders get their mandate to lead, and
giving our vote is the same giving them our trust that they will serve us
to the best of their abilities. Thus not only is voting wisely a choice, it is
more importantly an obligation of every Iskolar ng Bayan.

For so many years, we have seen an unenthusiastic participation of the


students in the student council elections since the voters’ turnout has
never surpassed the 50 percent mark. Now, more than ever, is the time
for us to prove that we are actively involved in shaping the political
landscape of the university and that for us, there can never be any room
for apathy.
