Kiss and kick

PERFECT. At clustered precinct No. 6 located at the Ilocos Norte National High School, the election went as okay as it could get. All 597 voters, accounting for a 72.4% turnout for Laoag City’s Brgy. 3, were able to cast their ballots without trouble. There were no rejected or spoiled ballots, not one. Poll watchers did not observe any irregularities, too.

    Kudos to Mark Anthony Tomas, the youthful chair of the Board of Election Inspectors, and his team for a job so well done.


    THUMBS DOWN to the polling center at the Agripino P. Santos Elementary School in Laoag City. All three precincts were located on the second floor. Handicapped voters and senior citizens, including my parents, had to take steep, two-part stairs.

    There were many classrooms on the ground floor.

One thought on “Kiss and kick”

  1. Naging matagumpay ang kauna-unahang automated election dito sa ating bansa, bilang resulta nito mabilis naiproklamang pangulo ng pilipinas si P-Noy. Pero madami ring naging problema mula sa naganap na eleksyon, ilan n dito ay may mga makinang hindi gumana nung eleksyon, mga botanteng hindi nakaboto dahil sa kunti lang ang mga makinang gamit sa bagboto . Kaya sana sa susunod na National Election ay hindi na maulit pa ang mga ganitong problema. Naging maganda ang resulta ng 2010 election sana mas magiging maganda ang susunod na election.
