TikTok has partnered with the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) to enable Filipinos to gain easy access to reliable election information, leading up to the National Elections in 2022.
Through this partnership, TikTok continues its ongoing initiative to ensure that users stay informed, and maintain authenticity on the platform, especially during the elections season.
To better educate voters, the official TikTok account for COMELEC will not only serve as a resource for trustworthy election-related information but also advocate for voter participation leading up to the May 2022 Election Day. This will be done through featured events, videos showing relevant election data from COMELEC, and up-to-date voting results.
TikTok’s Community Guidelines fight misinformation by restricting users from posting inaccurate content on the platform, and empowering community members to report misleading content related to the elections.
This is similar to a previous effort launched by TikTok to counter disinformation about COVID-19, which included fact-checking by experts, and the removal of false information within the platform.
