A coverage like no other

SunStar File

THREE days from now, Filipinos from all over the Philippines will once again troop to precincts to cast their vote.

The Commission on Elections reported last year that over 18,000 national and local positions are up for grabs in this year's midterm polls.

If you're in or outside the country and looking for information about the national and local elections, particularly in major cities like Cebu, Davao, Manila, Pampanga, Baguio, Cagayan de Oro, and Bacolod, to mention a few, then you've come to the right place.

SunStar, providing content on different platforms, will bring you real-time updates from the country's major cities 24/7 on May 13.

Updates on the elections will be aired live from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. of May 13 on SunStar website at and Facebook accounts @sunstarcebu, @superbalitacebu, and @sunStarphilippines. Our live streaming will be done in partnership with Smart Communications Inc. and PLDT.

Aside from the live reports from precincts and media centers, SunStar will also give you breaking news and a running tally of votes (unofficial and official) for those wondering who gets the people's support. These will be shared also on our Facebook and Twitter pages on and after election day.
