Martin showed the same video on his Instagram page today while urging others to also get registered. He stressed that getting registered would be the public’s “weapon” in fighting for their rights.
“Eto ang tangi nating armas upang maipaglaban natin ang ating karapatan at maitama kung ano man ang mga nakita nating pagkakamali,” he told fans. “Ngayon ang panahon para maiparinig natin ang ating boses at maipaglaban natin ang ating karapatan.”
(This is our only weapon to fight for our rights and to right the wrongs that we are seeing. Now is the time to let our voices be heard and to fight for our rights.)

Montes is currently working with Martin in the long-running series “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.” She plays the leading lady Mara opposite Martin’s character Cardo Dalisay.
Montes and Martin were first paired in the 2012 TV series “Walang Hanggan” with Dawn Zulueta and Richard Gomez. They have since been rumored to be in a relationship. Over the past months, fans have been spotting them together in various locations. They are yet to confirm or deny romance speculations.
The Commission on Elections recently approved the extension of the voter registration period until Oct. 31, from the initial Sept. 30 deadline. The commission was previously not inclined to extend registration due to the challenges it will create with the election timeline. /ra
