This second dissemination of results today forms part of the electoral survey which the URC conducted for Blue Vote 2013. Blue Vote 2013 is an initiative launched by ADDU in February that looks into the political-electoral engagement of the university community as a way of raising greater public consciousness toward more sustainable, objective, issue-based, empirical and comprehensive electoral education not only within ADDU but the greater community of Davao City. This university-wide election-related engagement was initiated by the University Community Engagement and Advocacy Council (UCEAC) headed by Atty. Romeo Cabarde, Jr.
