ELECTION DAY: What To Expect on May 9, 2016! 

  • Voting starts at 6 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m.
  • You need to bring an identification card (ID) bearing your complete name, address, and signature. Your best bets are your driver's license, NBI Clearance, Passport, or SSS/GSIS ID.
  • You will be given a ballot and black marker. You'll use the marker to SHADE the OVAL beside the name of your chosen candidates. Remember: Checks, crosses, or other types of marks could be invalidated. 
  • Insert your ballot in the Vote Counting Machine (VCM). P.S. Each ballot has a unique code similar to fingerprints! 
  • Get your voter's receipt from the VCM—it should accurately reflect your votes. If it doesn't, inform the election inspector, stat!
  • Leave your voter's receipt in the precinct and get indelible ink dabbed on your index finger to signify you've voted.

Vote wisely, Cosmo Girls!
