Masaya si Tom Rodriguez dahil mae-exercise na niya ang kanyang karapatang bumoto ngayong May 9.
Ito raw ang unang pagkakataon na boboto siya rito sa Pilipinas.
Ayon kay Tom, “Yes, this is my first time to vote here.
“I’m 28 years old and I‘m realizing this is my home.
“This is where I’m gonna be raising my family. And I want to make an active role.
“Sabi ko, wala naman akong alam sa pulitika e, and sa who will I vote for.
“Sabi ko, I owe it to this country to study and learn. So, I started studying our history.
“I started studying the different types of government all over the world, history all over the world.
“Kasi inisip ko wala akong alam, sino ang iboboto ko. Naka-register nga ako pero sino?
“I was at zero, wala akong alam. So, I have to really study for the past few years.
“And that’s even before this movie [Magtanggol] was offered to me.
“Even before we started shooting, I already registered and I made it a choice na from now on, I will exercise that right.”
