Hi my fellow mylotters, as we now the Philippines just had a National Election last Monday, May 10, 2010. I arrived at the precinct around 10:30 am, after verifying my name and precinct no./cluster no. I checked my name first and rush in line. Thank god it was covered court but still the temperature is hot and I am way far from the chair. My body is aching from long standing and I am so hungry. The voting process was smooth and fast, at last I am finished from voting dilemma at 2 pm. I realized I was on queue for 3 1/2 hrs. What about you? Do you want to share your voting nightmare experience?

With the heat and long queues, I just went home and forgot about voting. Not mentioning that I have work that day. The transition from manual to automatic polling, millions of registered voters were not able to vote for their preferred candidates. That millions could have made a difference with the election results.

i actually was busy last election. many people experienced that same thing with your experience. that happened because of the clustering of the precincts. some have less than a thousand voters per precinct. the BEIs were so busy accommodating the voters that they didn't even have time to eat their meals on time. inspite of those problems, i'm happy that it went good. people are cooperative in our precinct even though they had to stand sweating because of the hot weather for a long time.
