Kapuso actress Janine Gutierrez reminded Filipinos to register as voters as registration on the Commission of Elections continues.

The 30-year-old actress warmly greeted her Twitter followers and reminded them to exercise their right to suffrage ahead of the 2022 elections.

“Hi ily (I love you) imy (I miss you) you’re doing great don’t forget to register to vote,” Gutierrez wrote on Wednesday with a kiss emoji.

Her tweet has reached about 2,100 likes on the microblogging platform.

Rep. Sarah Elago (Kabataan party-list) supported the actress’ call and retweeted it on her own account with a raised fist emoji.

Last week, COMELEC spokesperson James Jimenez dared Filipino TikTok influencers to partner with the agency and create a voter registration campaign for the youth.

Kapamilya love team MayWard, or Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber, previously earned praises for registering as voters and influencing their followers, who are mostly composed of young people.
