THE COMMISSION on Elections (Comelec) will revise its voting procedures for the May 2022 polls to address issues that were observed during the mock elections held Wednesday in several areas across the country.
Among the problems encountered involved technical matters relating to ballots to vote counting machines as well as ensuring the observance of health protocols such as distancing.
“The Comelec will discuss that (maintaining distance at voting lines). We will come up with protocols or guidelines on how to address that problem,” Comelec Director Eliza Sabille-David said in Filipino in an interview Thursday with government-run PTV.
She also said that the commission would need to address potential crowding at the voting sites. — Jaspearl Emerald G. Tan
