MANILA, Philippines—At least 40 percent of the compact flash cards for the 76,300 voting machines have already been tested, contractor Smartmatic TIM spokesman Cesar Flores said in an update Sunday morning.
All of the 1,600 municipalities in the country have received the replacement compact flash cards, he said.
All the 76,300 voting machines have been dispatched and received in the precincts, he added.
“We’re in good shape,” he said.
The company expects to finish the testing and sealing today, Sunday (May 9), on the eve of the elections.
