The partnership includes TikTok being the leading platform to provide reliable and authentic information about the upcoming elections. This is through the official TikTok account for COMELEC posting, featured events, videos on election data from COMELEC, and voting results. In this way and many others, TikTok and COMELEC will proactively encourage users to participate in the polls.
The partnership started with signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on September 8, 2021.
“TikTok’s partnership with COMELEC opens up new and innovative ways to share and consume accurate information about the coming elections for the Filipino public. We are committed to providing credible, fact-based content to help Filipino voters make informed choices during the election period,” said Kristoffer Rada, TikTok Head for Public Policy.
