MANILA, Philippines — Poll watchdog Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) on Tuesday said that no discrepancies have been found yet in its validation of electoral returns from Vote Counting Machines (VCMs) in the 2022 national and local elections.

However, PPCRV chairman Myla Villanueva clarified that the number of election returns is still small as the poll watchdog had only received 4,925 election returns as of 6:15 p.m. of May 10.

“Currently there are no discrepancies but the sample is small and we’d like to report the match rates as it becomes more representative,” said Villanueva.

Villanueva said that more election returns will arrive by Tuesday night, or Wednesday.

FEATURED STORIES

The PPCRV — through hundreds of volunteers — manually encodes the printed election returns from VCMs to verify if they match with the electronic results from the transparency server.

The poll watchdog will operate until May 20 in the University of Santo Tomas’ Quadricentennial Pavilion — which serves as the PPCRV’s command center.
