Poll body calls alleged pre-shading fake info
by Carlito C. Dar / PIA

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – A Commission on Election official here said the video of alleged pre-shaded ballots circulating in the social media is false information and only aims to malign the integrity of the May 13 elections.

Comelec-Cordillera Assistant Director Vanessa Roncal said the ballots in the said video did not come from Comelec as it does not bear the security features of the real ballots that will be used in the election.

“There are no pre-shaded ballots because all the ballots that will be given directly to the voters when they cast their votes on May 13 are secured,” Roncal said.

She said the false information only aims to undermine the efforts of all the agencies that are working together to ensure a safe, fair, and orderly election. 

Comelec-Cordillera Director Maria Juana Valeza assured that in partnership with the Police Regional Office-Cordillera, Armed Forces of the Philippines, and other stakeholders, all preparations are set for the May 13 polls.

Valeza encouraged voters to go out and exercise their right to vote and to vote according to their conscience and not be influenced by money or get intimidated.

She said with the help of all of their partners, they will do their best to ensure a safe, fair, and orderly May 13 elections. 

“The ball is now in your hands. Go out and vote as May 13 is the day that we can make our voices heard for a better future, for us and the country,” Roncal added.

PRO-Cor Director, B/Gen. Israel Ephraim Dickson, also assured that the Philippine National Police along with the AFP are there to ensure a safe and secured election, but he sought the cooperation of everyone to make this possible.

Data from the Comelec-Cordillera shows that there are 1,013,418 registered voters in the region who are expected to cast their votes in the 6,586 polling precincts.
