Maris Racal lined up as early as 2:30 AM to register to vote

Maris Racal isn't only a talented singer and actress, she's also one dedicated Filipino citizen.

Now officially a registered voter, the "Abot Langit" hitmaker shared the struggles she had to endure during the registration process in a TikTok video.

According to Maris, she fell in line as early as 2:30 AM to ensure that she will have a slot for that day.

While in line, Maris encountered several other things: she realized she brought the wrong bag, she saw a reporter trying to score an interview from the people on the line, and she sat on the ground due to long queueing hours.

But perhaps the worst part of it all was when she got her number (she's 24th on the line, by the way), she was informed that she fell in line at the wrong district.

As unfortunate as it seems, it didn't stop Maris from registering. She did the exact same thing all over again—falling in line at 2:30 AM, patiently waiting at the line until the office opens at 8—and voila! She was finally able to complete her registration.

Before she ended her video, she reminded everyone, "Lahat ng mga gustong magparehistro, maaga dapat kayong dumating. Meron pa tayong few days left kaya magparehistro na kayo, guys."


word of the day: district #fyp #registertovote
