TARLAC, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – During a news conference on Friday, Inoray Malawi, a poll watcher, showed a Vote Counting Machine (VCM) receipt which seemed to confirm allegations of massive electoral fraud ahead of the May 9 Philippine presidential elections.
Malawi (pictured above), said that in a dry run for the VCMs, her ballot receipt contained the name of administration standard-bearer Manuel Roxas 2nd instead of that of another presidential candidate whom she “voted” for.
Similar ballot receipt fraud allegations have been brought up during early voting by overseas Filipino voters in the Middle East.
Today, yet another incident was reported by an elementary school teacher assigned as a poll officer in Tarlac, hometown of President NoyNoy Aquino.
In this latest incident, the teacher said that during the dry run, she voted for Mayor Rodrigo Duterte. When the ballot receipt was printed, it showed the name of Donald Trump instead of Duterte.
