MANILA, Philippines — All the vote counting machines (VCMs) to be used in the upcoming elections have already been distributed to local hubs, Commission on Elections (Comelec) commissioner George Garcia said on Tuesday.

Garcia said 100 percent of the 106,000 VCMs and another 1,000 VCMs for contingency have already been delivered on time for its final testing and sealing of the VCMs to be held from May 2 to 7.

“Opo. Maagang nadeliver sa lahat ng hubs natin for deployment,” Garcia said in a text message to INQUIRER.net when asked to confirm if the VCM delivery was already at 100 percent.

(Yes. It was delivered early to our hubs for deployment.)
