In addition, Rappler will work with the poll body for the necessary information and action in order to enable a broader response on responding to common complaints on election day.

An online show, workshops, podcast, and seminars are also in the pipeline as well. Once the Post Finder and Precinct Finder are activated, they will also be made available on Rappler’s website.

The said move will make those services more mobile-responsive and will provide voters easy access to important information, especially on election day.

Access to information is critical. It is just as critical that we immediately quash false, misleading, and harmful election-related information on social media,” Jimenez said. “To help us on this front, Rappler has further committed to mobilize its network of fact-checkers.

The in-person MOA signing ceremony will be held on February 24, 10:00 A.M. at the COMELEC Session Hall in Palacio del Gobernador, Intramuros, Manila.
