CITY OF ILAGAN — Some registered voters failed to find their names on the Commission in Elections’ list of voters as they trooped to polling precincts to cast their ballots.

Teresita Cammayo, a village councilwoman in Baculod and a longtime voter, said she was surprised to have been delisted.

“I am a regular voter and I don’t know why my name was no longer found in the voters’ list,” she said.

Disenfranchised voters were also reported in some precincts in Ilagan City and Gamu town.
