More than half of all ballots for the Philippines’ nationwide automated polls have been produced a month before the deadline after a fifth printing press arrived ahead of schedule, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) said.

Some 26.178 million ballots of the total 50.7 million have been printed, Comelec Commissioner Gregorio Larazabal said in a press briefing on Monday.

“As of this morning, 26,178,510 officials ballots [have been printed]. We’ve crossed the 50-percent mark already,” he said, adding that the arrival of a fifth printing press helped produce more ballots.
