Vote early: Comelec
urges 1.5M in Negros


Provincial Election Supervisor Wil Arceño yesterday called on the 1.5 million registered voters in Negros Occidental and Bacolod City to go out and vote early today.

“Don't sell your votes, it is your duty as citizens to ensure that good leaders are elected for the country and your communities,” was Arceño's message to voters.

Voting starts at 7 a.m. and will last until 7 p.m., but he hopes voters turn out as early as 6:30 a.m., Arceño said.

The Comelec and law enforcers are all set for the polls, even with 13 defective Precinct Count Optical Scan Machines still not replaced by their head office as of last night, he said.moremoremore

More than 20,000 supporters of the Nationalist People's Coalition-Grupo Progreso filled the Bacolod City Public Plaza to overflowing after marching through the city streets led by its standard bearers to converge for their grand rally, or “miting de avance,” Saturday.

But the most significant speaker of the night was former congressman Charlie Cojuangco, son of NPC president, former Ambassador Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco, who personally endorsed the tandem of candidates Mayor Evelio Leonardia for congressman, Jude Thaddeus Sayson for mayor, former councilor Greg Gasataya for vice mayor, and the party's candidates for the Sangguniang Panlungsod..moremoremore
