Per its Canvass Report No. 7, the Comelec has canvassed 172 out of the 173 certificates of canvass (COCs) which covered 66,839,976 registered voters wherein 55,549,791 voters actually cast their votes on Election Day, May 9.

“Again, this validates our projection that this election will be the highest turnout across the board of all the elections, even during the manual and even during the advent of the automated elections,” said Comelec Acting Spokesperson John Rex C. Laudiangco said in a media briefing.

It is worth noting that the votes from Lanao del Sur and Shanghai, China are yet to be canvassed.

To recall, the elections in Shanghai, China did not push through due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Meanwhile, the Comelec declared the failure of elections in 14 barangays in Lanao del Sur, forcing the poll body to order special elections.
