Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray encouraged the public to “play a part in writing our future” by registering as voters for the upcoming 2022 national elections.

“The fight for freedom and independence is a constant and enduring one,” Gray said on her Instagram page as she marked the Philippines’ Independence Day yesterday, June 12. The beauty queen can be seen in front of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) logo wearing a mask and face shield, with her thumb raised and covered in purple ink, which suggests that she has registered.

“Today let’s not just look back on history but instead ask ourselves how we are playing a part in writing our future,” she added.

Gray stressed that everyone is free to register and vote for the upcoming national polls. She reminded the public to get registered before Sept. 30.

The national elections will take place on May 9, 2022. Around 73 million people are expected to be 18 years old and over by the said time. Despite this, about 15 million are not yet registered due to incapacity by the Comelec to accommodate new registrants.

Voter registration in Metro Manila and nearby provinces was also postponed in the past months due to a rising number of COVID-19 cases and stricter quarantine protocols. JB
