I did and I hope you did too!
Unfortunately, it’s very unlikely that Ang Ladlad will get a congressional seat this year. Based on unofficial vote tallies, Ang Ladlad only got around 106,000 votes, placing the party in the 60s ranking (though this is much, much better than majority of the other parties). Ang Ladlad needs around a total of 150,000 votes to place it in the top 50 parties and thus giving it a very strong chance of getting one seat.
Still, it’s not bad. Ang Ladlad is now on the ballot and has been given equal rights to participate in the Party-list election. I’m sure the party is now planning ahead to get more votes in the 2013 election. My opinion is that Ang Ladlad needs more visibility despite getting plenty of news coverage.
That said, I’m actually quite happy with the results in my clustered precinct (see the image below). I checked out the breakdown of results at COMELEC’s election website and found out that if the national results reflected my clustered precinct’s voting record, then Ang Ladlad would be getting 2 seats in Congress! How cool is that? (I wonder who those other 17 people who voted for Ang Ladlad were? I hope one of them was the cute guy I saw at the polling place. Hehehe.)
