'Overvoter' files protest

23 April 2019

It's another slow day at the polls after the 4-day holiday

A male voter has filed a protest after he was deemed to have voted more than the allowed number of candidates in the ongoing overseas voting for Filipinos at the Bayanihan Centre in Kennedy Town.

Consul Paul Saret told a media briefing earlier today, Apr 23, that the male voter had vehemently claimed he shaded exactly 12 circles corresponding to his chosen senatorial candidates.
The voter’s protest was immediately forwarded by the election secretariat to the Commission on Elections in Manila.

According to Consul Saret, the same voter had earlier tried to take a photograph of his ballot but was told off by members of the Special Board of Election Inspectors as the act is prohibited by law.
But for that over-voting incident, the vote-counting machines worked smoothly today, according to the inspectors and poll watchers, who said it could be because of the fine weather.

About 320 voters cast their ballots during the day, bringing the total for the first 11days of overseas voting beyond the 10,000 mark.
The day’s total was less than half of about 750 voters who trooped to Bayanihan Centre yesterday, which was a public holiday.

Poll inspectors say the polling center could become inordinately busy if or when Iglesia ni Cristo members cast their votes en masse.

Members of another big religious group, Jesus Is Lord church, have already begun voting, presumably for party-list group Cibac (Citizens’ Battle Against Corruption), which was founded by their spiritual leader, Eddie Villanueva. – Vir B. Lumicao
