Barangay Elections 2018

With barangay elections coming up, and student council election campaigns ongoing in some universities, it is worthwhile to look back at how campaigns are conducted in the past.

Here is a campaign pamphlet, written in Filipino and Spanish, endorsing Dr. Galicano Apacible when he ran for governor of Batangas in 1908. Notice how his credentials as an active nationalist are cited as a major reason why voters should select him.

Visit the Museo nina Leon at Galicano Apacible (Taal, Batangas) and Museo Ng Kasaysayang Pampulitika Ng Pilipinas, Casa Real (Malolos, Bulacan) to see more historic campaign paraphernalia.

Campaigning. #MakeItHistoric
