by JC Valcorza
Cagayan de Oro City (10 May) -- The elements of the Philippine National Police in the province of Camiguin have not received any election related incidence filed in their stations.
Thus, reported Police Senior Superintendent Edward S. Abejulela, Provincial Director of PNP in Camiguin.
Meanwhile, Provincial Election Supervisor Atty. Stalin A. Baguio of the Commission on Elections reported that all Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machines in the province are working well, as of 10 am, today.
But some precincts have served only around 150 voters, as of press time at 12 noon.
Baguio confirmed that all of the polling precincts in Camiguin are still beating up to finish and cater all voters, some of whom have waited for more than 10 hours in order to vote.
The delays are not only caused by minor technical glitches of the PCOS but also because of the clustering of precincts and with reduced number of Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) to help facilitate the voting process inside the polling centers.
Senior Citizens, on the other hand, were given priority in all pooling areas in the province.
Despite the rain showers that occurred this mid-morning, voters still continue to wait for their turn while some have also brought along their lunch packs anticipating delay. (PIA Camiguin) [top]
