MANILA, Philippines – Seven out of 10 Filipino voters expect vote-buying to occur in their localities during the May 10 elections, a recent survey by the Social Weather Stations (SWS) showed.

The special SWS Pre-election Survey, conducted from March 19 to 22, found 71 percent of registered voters expect vote-buying to take place in the coming polls.

Expectations of vote-buying increased from 57 percent in May 2007 to 63 percent in February 2010, and 71 percent in March 2010, the SWS said.

Compared to expectations of vote-buying, SWS said fewer percentages expect the following election irregularities to happen: cheating in the counting of votes (51 percent), flying voters (48 percent), harassment of voters (45 percent), and use of violence during the election campaign period (37 percent).
