Bolinao is a #3rd class municipality in the province of Pangasinan, Philippines. It has a population of 69,568 people in 12, 182 households according to the latest census.

Folk etymology the attributes the name "Bolinao" on this remote fishing enclave from the fish piece "Monamon" but commonly called "Bolinao" by the Tagalogs, Bicolanos, and Visayans. There is a theory also points out that once upon a time "pamulinawen" tress grew luxuriantly along its shores thus, the Ilocano migrants who crossed the Lingayen Gulf named it phonetically similar to the name of the tree. But nowadays, such tree does not exist anymore. Legend, also relates that during the time of Spanish era, a lovely lass nicknamed "Anao" live at the present site of the town proper. She used to bathe leisurely for hours under the Boli-Bolinao tree, where a chieftain's son who lived across the channel saw her and then wooed. An early marriage ensued but with the condition, among others, that the seat of the chieftain's government be moved to that place where Anao lived.There they are were to stay rulers hence, the name of Bolinao, Boli-Bolinao and Anao.

Election 2010 results - Bolinao Pangasinan

Last may 2010, Filipino experience the first ever automated election here in Philippines.This is a very significant milestone in our country’s history given those long years of tedious manual election process that not only gives burden to our teachers and volunteers, but has also left doubtful and questionable election results.
Through the PCOS (Precinct Count Optical Scan System) machine, an automatic counting of votes will take place. This won’t only make the task of our teachers lighter, but would also lessen massive cheating during election.

The Municipal Board of Canvassers has proclaimed the following winners of the 10 May 2010 elections.

Congratulations to all newly elected/re-elected municipal officials!
