COMELEC to validate alleged overseas absentee voting glitch
by PNA release

The Commission on Elections said it will look into the allegation of an overseas voter that her vote for a particular senatorial candidate was credited to another aspirant.

Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez said on Friday such complaint will undergo a process.

“There is a claim and that claim will have to be validated and verified. These receipts are given to the Board of Election Inspectors so that the allegation and complaint is fully reported in the minutes of the voting,” he added.

In a video on Facebook, an overseas voter claimed that there was an inconsistency on her ballot, saying she voted for senatorial bet Glenn Chong, but her vote allegedly went to senatorial candidate Gary Alejano.

Jimenez said they have contingencies prepared in case a voter contests what is printed on the receipt.

A voter receipt is issued by the vote counting machine as a proof that his/her votes have been counted by the machine. It contains the names of the senatorial candidates and partylist group the voter had chosen.

“One of the contingencies that we have planned is for instances when a voter contests the content of the receipt, and ultimately the consensus is that an alleged inconsistency of the receipt is not actually proof that anything nefarious has happened,” Jimenez said.

He urged the public not to immediately pass judgment with regards to the reported inconsistencies.

“If there are occasional instances where we see such case, we have to be careful before we jump to any conclusion. There are many ways to validate the claim and there are many reasons why it happened without going to the theory that we have been cheated,” Jimenez added.
