  2. 2. Youth Vote:  Breaking Silence in the Electoral Process <br /> The impending Philippine presidential elections call for the youth’s political involvement.  To ensure a promising future for good governance in politics, the interest and capacity of young people to participate meaningfully in the elections and in the political life of their communities, is a matter of critical importance.  The following issues are worth exploring: <br />What is the nature of the political interest and engagement among young people? <br />What are the youth’s insights concerning the electoral process and Philippine politics in general? <br />How can youth participation in the elections be strengthened?<br />
