Comelec to destroy unused LDS special polls ballots

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) said the destruction of unused official printed ballots and other election-related materials supposed to be used in the special elections for the municipalities of Binidayan and Butig, Lanao del Sur will commence on July 12.


The said ballots were not used as the special polls in the two Lanao del Sur towns were cancelled.

It was last May 23 when the Comelec announced the cancellation of the special elections in Butig and Bindayan after it became apparent that no failure of elections took place in the two towns.

In an advisory, the Comelec said the activity will be conducted at 10 a.m. at the Procurement Management Department Conference Room at the FEMII Building in Intramuros, Manila.

The poll body said representatives of all political parties, stakeholders, and members of the media are invited to witness the activity.

The Comelec said livestream will be available on their official Facebook page ( and YouTube Channel (
