Binmaley is a 2nd class municipality in the province of Pangasinan, Philippines. According to the latest census, it has a population of 76,214 people in 13,415 households.

Binmaley is located along the central coastland of Pangasinan facing the South China sea, in between Lingayen and Dagupan City. On January 8-9, 1945, the amphibious forces of U.S. General Douglas MacArthur used the town's beach, designated as "yellow beach", alongside the beaches of Lingayen, Dagupan, and San Fabian, in their landing operations to liberate Luzon from Japanese occupation during World War II.

The town is famous for its bangus (milkfish) aqua-culture, due to the existence of its numerous fishponds (pokok in the Pangasinan language). However, because of constant siltation over the past several years from mine tailings upstream from Agno River (due to mine operations in neighboring Benguet Province), and the overuse of artificial fish feeds, the bangus industry has suffered from fishkill, fewer viable fishponds and lower harvests. As a result, many formerly productive fishponds have been converted into large commercial and residential lots. This phenomena is beginning to seriously threaten the unique Binmaley fishpond industry. Current Government action is inadequate due to strong pressures from other competing commercial interests, not to mention fishfeed producers.

Binmaley's town center has a beautiful Baroque cathedral dating back to the 17th century. It also became famous throughout the Philippines for the outstanding academic achievements of students (and its distinctive corps of military cadets) from its Binmaley Catholic High School, especially when it was headed by a German priest, Fr. Leo Behneke, in the 60s and 70s. Its name roughly means "the place which became a town" or "went to town" in the Pangasinan language.

Election 2010 Results - Binmaley 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 May 2010 elections after canvassing.
