20% of voters in Cebu disenfranchised

CEBU CITY — Lisa (not her real name), 27, lined up in one of the polling places at the Abellana National High School in Cebu City. She went to the polling place at around 10 in the morning to cast her vote. Her precinct, she was told, had 800 voters, and as of 7:45 of May 10, only 200 voters have been accommodated.

Twenty percent of voters from Region 7 were disenfranchised in the first automated elections, according to an ecumenical monitoring group in Cebu.

Fr. Jess Dumaual, MSC, co-chair of Pagbabago! Cebu said twenty percent of voters in Region 7 were disenfranchised. He added that the disenfranchisement was caused by the Commission on Elections’ inability to foresee otherwise simple and preventable problems.
