DAY 17: VOTE TALLY DIPS DESPITE GOOD WEATHER

26 April 2016

Fair weather took over yesterday, Apr 25, but work had apparently kept most Filipino voters in Hong Kong from trooping to the Bayanihan Center in Kennedy Town to cast their votes for the Philippine presidential elections.
By the day’s end, only 334 voters were recorded, one of the lowest in 17 days of voting.

The total figure now stands at 23,646, representing just over 22% of the more than 93,000 registered to vote in Hong Kong.
With just 14 days left in the month-long overseas voting, Consulate officials are still optimistic they could hit their target turnout of between 45% to 50%.
They described Monday’s voting at Bayanihan Centre as quiet and smooth, and with none of the technical glitches involving the vote counting machines.
Only nine VCMs are being used at the polling place, instead of the 10 originally designated for Hong Kong.
Comelec sent four replacement units in the first week of voting, but three have already been used in place of those that had broken down earlier. The fourth is not configured, so is useless.

A request for additional units has yet to be met.
