Ballot for overseas voting shipped soon
The Commission on Elections (Comelec) is set to deploy official ballots and other poll paraphernalia for the overseas absentee voting that will be held a month before the May 13 regular midterm elections.
“The first shipment will be this March, more likely this second week of March,” said Elaiza Sabile-David, head of the Comelec Office for Overseas Voting.
She said the printing of ballots had long been completed by the National Printing Office.
