The Consulate General of the Philippines in New York informs all approved accredited watchers, media entities, election observers, and the general public that due to the influx of ballot envelopes and to ensure the timely counting of all received ballots, the Consulate will be conducting an additional ballot feeding day on Sunday, 08 May starting at 2 p.m. at the Kalayaan Hall of the Philippine Center, until all remaining valid ballots are fed and counted. This is in addition to the daily ballot feeding days from 02 to 07 May 2022. The ballot feeding will also be streamed live on the Consulate’s Facebook page.

On Election Day, Monday, 09 May 2022, the printing of election returns will begin at 7 a.m.

All accredited watchers, media entities, and election observers who plan to observe the ballot feeding in person are reminded to comply with Commission on Elections (COMELEC) regulations on presenting their papers to the Special Board of Election Inspectors (SBEI), wearing their IDs while inside the Philippine Center, and adhering to the Consulate’s prevailing health protocols.
