“Actual voters” would participate in the simulation, according to Teopisto Elnas Jr., director of the Comelec’s Election and Barangay Affairs Department.

He said since the May 14 elections would be the first for youths since 2015 “the commission is looking to address the confusion that may arise due to 18- to 30-year-old voters being given two ballots to fill out” since they would have to vote for officials of village governments and members of youth councils. —Tina G.
