So far, despite all the controversies and problems brought about by the first automated elections in the country, I would say that in our area, Heritage Homes, Loma de Gato, Marilao, Bulacan, the election is successful and peaceful.

The computerized election is new to the Filipinos but overall, our local community experienced a hassle-free election as compared to the manual elections before. Though there were quite a small number of election-related violence recorded in our area, I could proudly say that ours is victorious. 

The only negative news that I could report on our area is that there are still volunteers giving out sample ballots within the vicinity of the precincts. There are also a lot of volunteers giving out campaign materials to voters. These scenarios were also evident in the past elections.

    me too! obviously I voted for Gordon and Bayani and they are not topping the election results. even for my senate bets, most of them did not make it to the Top 12 of the election results…


    agree! lets respect the people’s decision..
