Voters are being told to stay in their designated precincts until they see their voting receipts, amid reports of malfunctioning vote-counting machines (VCMs).
"Ang ating panawagan sa mga kababayan ngayong araw: walang aalis ng voting precinct hangga't hindi niyo pa nache-check ang resibo ng inyong balota," said former Senator Bam Aquino, who is also the campaign manager of Vice President Leni Robredo, in a tweet.
(Our appeal to Filipinos on this day: do not leave your voting precinct until you have checked the receipt of your vote.)
He made the remarks after reports of malfunctioning VCMs, with voters told to go home while a poll watcher feeds the machine their ballots once the machine works.
According to Aquino, malfunctioning VCMs, as well as election offenses, should be reported to their hotline.
"Mahabang pila at init? Tibayan ang loob. Sirang VCMs at pananakot? I-report sa ating hotlines. Titindig tayo para sa Pilipinas!"
(Long lines and the heat? Remain steadfast. Broken VCMs and threats? Report this to our hotlines. Let us remain firm for the Philippines!)
The volunteer group "Lawyers for Leni" launched the "Pink Hotline" where individuals can report election offenses that they may witness.
These offenses include illegal campaigning, vote-buying, armed individuals, threats, and disruptions.(DZRH News)
