Negros Occidental voters to pick leaders today in election
Bacolod City (10 May) -- From 9,950 established precincts, this was trimmed down to 2,050 clustered precincts in 742 voting centers province-wide.
The Comelec has called on voters to vote and exercise their right of suffrage which is one of the important fruits of democracy.
The police and the AFP have given a go signal as well, for all voters to go to their precincts as they assured everyone of police protection with the help of private citizens and of force multipliers.
The Comelec, police and the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting and the Dep Ed have all combined their forces to assist voters and address problems as they emerge.
According to initial reports, polling areas in Bacolod City have peacefully opened as early as 7:00 am to start the voting process and accommodate all of them until 6:00 pm or until all have casted their votes. (PIA-LOL) [top]
