Comelec canvassing ends
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

The canvassing of election results of the May 13 polls in Negros Oriental wrapped up Saturday with the hard copies ready to be delivered personally to the Commission on Elections central office in Manila tomorrow.

Acting provincial elections supervisor Juvenal Tuale, chair of the Provincial Board of Canvassers, with Salustiano Jimenez of the Department of Education-Negros Oriental Division, and City Prosecutor Juditho Agan, will hand carry the documents to Manila, Hazel Aurea of the local Comelec said yesterday.

After some delays due to corrupted main memory cards of several Precinct Count Optical Scan machines in 10 areas of the province, and other minor hitches, the PBOC declared a 100 percent canvass of votes Saturday with Bindoy town the last to transmit its election results.
