PPCRV ends tally today; special polls in 9 areas slated
MANILA, Philippines – The Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) winds up today its tally of election returns (ERs) with over 90 percent of votes transmitted from precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines processed and more than half manually counted.
Media communications director Ana de Villa-Singson said the PPCRV is set to shut down its command center at Pope Pius XII Catholic Center on UN Avenue in Manila and stop encoding ERs at 11 p.m. today.
PPRCV officials and staff will transfer to a smaller room where they will continue receiving data from the PCOS machines.
