DELIVERY OF ELECTION RESULTS IN NEW YORK TO WASHINGTON DC
The Consulate General of the Philippines in New York informs kababayan that overseas voting was declared successfully concluded yesterday, 09 May 2022. Canvassing of votes was concluded at around 9 p.m. yesterday, 14 hours after close of voting was declared at 7 a.m.
However, the results could not be immediately transmitted to the Embassy of the Philippines in Washington D.C. because the transmission equipment could not acquire the required signal due to the presence of high-rise buildings around the Philippine Center.
The Consulate has requested the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) for authority to hand deliver the election results and other election paraphernalia to the Special Board of Canvassers (SBOC) in Washington DC.
The authorization is expected to be received tonight, after which the election materials will be delivered first thing tomorrow.
Maraming Salamat Po!
