Here’s an important reminder for voters on today, Oct. 25, 2010. Polling precincts will be open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections, which will use manual voting.

However, due to the delays in the shipment of the official ballots, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) prepared a resolution authorizing election officers to postpone the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan polls in their areas to Tuesday.

The said resolution of the poll body was to take effect for towns or cities where the election materials would not arrive by 12 noon today. The proposed resolution was circulated in the regional offices of the Comelec late afternoon yesterday.

The resolution seeks to hand over to election officers, of towns that will receive the election supplies later than 12 noon today, the discretion to hold the elections on the same day or postpone it tomorrow.

Veronico Petalcorin, acting director of Comelec Region 7 said that as of 6 p.m. yesterday, the resolution has not been signed by the members of the commission except for Commissioner Gregorio Larrazabal.

Petalcorin said that they expect all the commissioners to sign the resolution by last midnight if they will see that deliveries could not make it on time in some areas.

The case is not however much of a problem in Cebu as election paraphernalia are expected to reach their respective precincts on time. As of 6 p.m., the Comelec office in Cebu City has received 34 of the 38 items needed for the polls. Not all were distributed immediately as they still need to be segregated by the City Treasurer's Office and would be handed over at dawn.

There are a total of 1,536 precincts in Cebu City, which are broken down to 1,438 for the barangay elections and 98 for the SK.
