Monitor poll results in Inquirer
Want to be among the first to know who the new President is? The Inquirer will give you that information fast.
After voting ends at 5 p.m. today, the Inquirer will start reporting the results of the national and local elections straight from the mirror server of the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
The Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI) and Inquirer.net are among the few news organizations the Comelec has granted access to electronically transmitted election precinct results from its mirror server at the Pope Pius XII Catholic Center in Ermita, Manila.
It will be the same election results that will be received by four parties directly from the transparency server—the Liberal Party as the dominant majority party, United Nationalist Alliance as the dominant minority party, Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas and Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV), the citizen’s arm authorized by the Comelec to conduct the unofficial count.
Official, unofficial count
Under the automated election system, results from 92,509 vote-counting machines (VCMs) in 369,138 precincts are electronically transmitted to the board of canvassers, the Comelec central server and the transparency server at Pope Pius. The media organizations will receive the same data from a mirror or redundancy server.
The PPCRV will conduct the authorized unofficial count from its command center at Pope Pius. Ana de Villa Singson, PPCRV national media and communications director, said the group expected the first unofficial count around 7 tonight.
The Comelec will later hold the official canvass of senatorial and party-list winners at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City, followed by the official canvass of the presidential and vice presidential candidates conducted by the joint houses of Congress.
Delivering fast unofficial results on different media platforms to our readers is one of the highlights of the Inquirer Group’s #VotePH2016 ThinQ.Vote. election coverage.

With access to the Comelec-GMA mirror server for the first time, the different Inquirer news platforms will post up-to-the-minute results to our readers on their smartphones, desktops, tablets and smart watches.
Inquirer.net’s updated special site with results (inquirer.net/elections2016) is set to go live at 3:30 p.m. today and will be updated every 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the transmissions from the transparency and mirror servers.
Highlighted on the election site homepage are the number of votes received by the five presidential, six vice presidential and 52 senatorial candidates, and their rankings.
The election site homepage will also display the number of precincts that have transmitted their results, as well as a map of the Philippines, whose 81 provinces and Metro Manila will change from gray to the assigned color of the presidential candidate leading in the area.
Users can also find out the leading candidates for President, Vice President and governor by hovering on each province if they use a desktop, or by clicking if they use a mobile phone or tablet.
Local election results will also be made available on the website in table form.
