Philippine presidential election: I voted today

Today I voted for a president and a vice president. I could’ve voted for 12 senators, but only voted for five.

Some observations:

* Voting didn’t start at exactly 6 AM. The teachers serving as members of the Board of Election Inspectors told voters that they were still briefing the election watchers.

* There was a problem with the vote counting machine. The teachers needed the assistance of a technician to fix it.

* Some voters were unable and/or unwilling to follow instructions. Good thing the teachers were vigilant enough to weed out voters who hadn’t followed instructions (example: voters weren’t supposed to go straight to the voting area; they had to fill out a stub first in a holding area).
