MANILA - The Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) has tapped youth ambassadors with considerable social media following to reach out to youth voters, an official of the election watchdog said Friday.

Youth voters account for at least a third of registered voters in this year's elections and their choice may heavily influence poll results, Agnes Gervacio, PPCRV media director, told ANC's Early Edition.

"They could swing the result of any elections," she said.

"That is why we are are changing our campaign and using youth ambassadors to reach a huger portion of the populace," she said.

Among the PPCRV's ambassadors this year are athlete-turned-host Gretchen Ho, basketball player Chris Tiu, and volleyball star Alyssa Valdez.
