‘Ballots printing 7 days ahead’

The Commission on Elections expects to finish ballot printing—which started on Feb. 9—for the May 13 midterm elections seven days ahead of schedule.

Interviewed on Balitanghali, heard nationwide, Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez said with still more than a month before the deadline, the poll body had finished printing “almost 50 percent” of the total ballots.

“Almost 50 percent already done...In fact, under our timeline, we expect to finish seven days ahead of schedule,” he said in a mix of Tagalog and English.

The deadline for the printing of ballots is on April 25, 2019. 

There are 61,843,750 registered voters for the May elections, Comelec said.
