VCMs now in Kalinga towns
by Peter A. Balocnit / PIA

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – It’s all systems go for the elections in the province.

Provincial Election Supervisor Ricardo Lampac said election supplies and other paraphernalia were received by election officers earlier, the vote counting machines (VCM) were delivered to municipalities, and the appointment of teachers to serve as electoral boards have been issued. 

The final testing and sealing of VCMs has been completed.

Police Col. Job Russel Balaquit, acting Kalinga Provincial Police Office director, said 776 police personnel and 479 from the Armed Forces of the Philippines were already deployed to secure the elections.

“Two police personnel will be assigned to every polling center. An 18-man team of quick response force was also organized. The Provincial Election Monitoring and Action Center is also established at the Kalinga Provincial Police Office,” Balaquit said.

To ensure efficient and effective operations of VCMs during election day, Lampac said 250 technicians will be assigned per clustered precincts. 

He also assured that there are standby VCMs in case of malfunction, battery packs to last for 14 hours in case of power interruption, and generator sets for precincts without electricity.

Broadband Global Area Network were also provided for result transmittal in areas with no  or poor Internet signal.

In terms of election hotspot categorization, Lubuagan remains under the “red” category; Balbalan, Tabuk City, and Rizal – orange; Pasil and Pinukpuk – yellow; and Tanudan and Tinglayan – blue.
