Manila Metblogs rocks the ballot this Monday!

Download a PDF Copy of the Unofficial Google Ballot

It’s election time in Manila (and all over the Philippines) as we vote on Monday (which is a holiday by the way).
In order to help you decide who to vote for on Monday, we will be releasing some “fun guides” that can help you fill in those missing slots from your ballot.

First on our list is the Metblogs compiled Unofficial Google Ballot (which is in NO way at all endorsed, accepted, released or generated by Google) of Senatoriables for this year’s elections. What would happen if the election relied on Google’s search results and page ranking? You can even find out if your candidate is Feeling Lucky?

What if indeed, search engine Google can vote in the 2007 Philippine Elections, who would it vote for? To find out, we first ranked each of the 37 senators running for the 2007 elections based on their Google search results. Then we ranked the candidates based on their official web site’s position within the result research.

To be fair to stray voters, we did the search twice, first based on their real name then on their nick name and then got the average rank between the two categories.

Of course, as responsible voters, we here in Metblogs hope that you base your vote on more than popularity so this following ballot is just for your sheer enjoyment.

    I’m a taxi driver in San Jose, California. This morning my fare, Harry, went to San Francisco Airport so that he could fly home to Manila. During the 45-minute drive he explained some of the political process in your country. Good luck.
