Election Call Center

Subject: Election Call Center

Greetings of Peace!

Starting 1 May 2004, access to election related information is just five numbers away -- 10-149. For the first time in the history of our national elections, you can call 10-149 from a PLDT landline anywhere in the
Philippines for free, to talk to a tele-educator about the following:

· candidates' profiles and stand on issues
· party-list information
· your precinct number
· information for first time voters
· information on how to get involved in the elections
· where to get election resources from
· exit polls
· inquire about election related legal matters

This service is especially helpful for people who do not have access to the internet or cannot read since a live person will be the one providing you with the information you need to make an informed vote. Calls will
be entertained from 1 May to 10 May, 9:00am to 9:00pm.

This project is called the Gabay-Halalan 10-149. It is spearheaded by Simbahang Lingkod ng Bayan (SLB) and Professionals Actively Responding Today (PART) in cooperation with PLDT. Gabay-Halalan is still in need of Metro Manila-based volunteers who would like to be tele-educators.

Please sign up (name, email, contact number) at the Simbahang Lingkod ng Bayan Office.

The dream of an enlightened electorate is just a phone call away. Dial 10-149.

Para sa Diyos at Bayan,

Joaquin C. Sumpaico III, S.J.
Director, Simbahang Lingkod ng Bayan
