MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) kicked off its mock elections Wednesday morning in parts of Metro Manila and six provinces in preparation for the May 2022 elections.
The voting simulation is being held in Taguig City, Pateros, and Pasay City in Metro Manila, as well as in Isabela, Albay, Negros Oriental, Leyte, Maguindanao and Davao del Sur.

Elnas said Comelec’s target is to accommodate 4,800 test voters.
