Election is where we freely express our cites and feelings on the changes we would like to have in a nation. Filipinos are also given the chance to cast their ballots even though they are away from their homeland. May 13 election is quite close and there is a possibility that thousands of Filipinos overseas may not be able to vote including those who are in Australia. The ballot envelopes that were sent to the addresses in Australia were returned for non delivery. Sydney consulate alone has round about 2,800 registered voters are at risk of not being able to vote on May 13 election and those undelivered ballot envelopes were caused of a non recognised addresses, incorrect addresses or incomplete addresses.
