Cast your cups: 7-Election is back and you’re invited to #SpeakCUP

Starting March 9 to April 27, 7-Eleven will hold 7-Election 2022, its unofficial and unscientific yet fun and creative mock poll. Now on its third run, 7-Election  gives everyone, regardless of voting age, the freedom and opportunity to cast as many votes as they want by choosing the cup of their presidential bet.

The toxic conversations, spread of false information, and the rise of ‘cancel culture’ can be so overwhelming. So if you need a break from it all, 7-Eleven is here to bring convenience — and provide a safe space to #SpeakCUP and be heard! Cast your cups and cheers!  Available in City Cafe and GULP cups which start at P39 and P35 respectively. The 2022 edition is also made better with City Cafe joining the campaign together with GULP . Now with more beverage options, the public can have fun, keep cool, and stay woke while participating in political conversations!
