With the massive campaigns they've been running, it may be likely that the senatorial aspirants are the only names you are aware of. But the mid-term elections will not only bring 12 new legislators to the Senate for a six-year term, it will also elect new officials to local government units.

If you don't know the names of the candidates aspiring to be your city’s mayor or your district’s representative in Congress, the sample ballot templates on the Commission on Election (COMELEC)’s website may help.
