Local absentee votes opened on polls day
by PNA

Votes cast in the three-day local absentee voting will not be immediately counted, the Commission on Elections said last week.

"The results of the local absentee voting will be made known on election day just the like rest of the country,” Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez said.

With this, Jimenez warned voters not to believe news or information claiming the victory of a certain candidate.

“Again, paalala sa publiko na maglilipana na naman ‘yung mga balita na nanalo sa ganitong kampo or nanalo sa ganitong opisina. Huwag tayong maniniwala because that information of course will be false,” he added.

Comelec data showed only 29,321 out of 35,604 applications for the local absentee voting have been approved.

Armed Forces of the Philippines personnel represent bulk of the voters with 20,064, while there are 7,576 Philippine National Police employees and 460 members of the media who are absentee voters.

“For the rest, medyo mataas naman ang voter turnout at around 60 to 70 percent. This is expected kasi nag-effort sila na mapasali sa local absentee voting,” Jimenez said.

Aside from police officers, soldiers, and media workers, government employees who will be on duty during election day are eligible for the absentee voting.

The three-day voting period was held last Monday to Wednesday in the camp or office where the voters filed their applications for absentee voting, selecting candidates for national positions only, which includes 12 senators and one party-list group.
