Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday called on Negrenses to keep the barangay elections today peaceful, credible and friendly.
“Let us avoid making the elections divisive, because, after the exercise, we will all have to work together for the peace and progress of the country,” the governor said.
Provincial Elections Supervisor Jessie Suarez said the Comelec is all set for the polls and they are urging voters to go out and vote early. Negros Occidental has 1.6 million voters, he said.
Voting will start at 7 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. today, he said.
