CITY OF SAN FERNANDO — The barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan polls started smoothly in Pampanga province with only the usual election problems noted, said the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
“No officials from any precinct have reported any problems yet, so election in the province is 100 percent rolling,” said lawyer Temie Lambino, provincial election supervisor, said.
The voting started at 7 a.m. Monday, but the usual problems of missing and misplaced names, confusion amid “unorganized” lists, and delays in the opening of some precincts surfaced.
There are at least 3,804 clustered precincts in Pampanga’s 538 villages.
Lambino reminded the voters that the polling precincts are open until 3 p.m. without a noon break.
Unlike the May 2010 national elections, there were no precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines in Monday’s elections. Read rest of story
