Heart Evangelista did not vote for Chiz Escudero

Heart Evangelista did not (wasn’t able to) vote for her boyfriend, re-electionist senator Chiz Escudero, for a very simple reason. She is not a registered voter.

Reports before the elections said Love Marie Payawal Ongpauco, Heart’s real name, was nowhere to be found in the Commission on Elections voters list.

The 28-year-old actress admitted to Yahoo! Southeast Asia that she did not register at the Comelec prior to the recent poll.

“Yes I’m not [registered],” she texted. “In fact I feel sad that I can’t even vote for my boyfriend but since I dated Chiz I realized the importance and significance of the right to suffrage.”

The actress posed for Esquire Philippines’ 2013 election issue. In the cover photo, she wore a white shirt urging Filipinos to “VOTE” wisely.

Despite her strong statement, it was very ironic that Heart Evangelista did not vote for Chiz Escudero.
