WHAT ARE THE STEPS TO TAKE IF YOUR RECEIPT HAS DISCREPANCY WITH YOUR ACTUAL BALLOT




Few weeks ago rumors had been circulating that voter's receipt does not reflect who they really voted for in their ballot. Until a video of this woman who is an OFW from Hong Kong surfaced. She narrated that she voted for Duterte, checked it several times to make sure she shaded the right candidate before  but the receipt from the PCOS machine showed it is Mar Roxas. According to her the BEI asked her to sign at the back of the receipt and they made a log of the incident. However advise was given to her to ask for ballot number. But when she went back to ask for it, most of the staff told her there is no ballot number, as she waited it was eventually released and given to her. 






Here is the process when voting overseas:

Another post from a Filipino who voted in Toronto, Canada posted the following where the consulate there did not allow him to insert his ballot to the PCOS machine but instead asked him to put it in an envelope and drop it in the box. 



Some points you may want to do when voting:

Remember or take note of your ballot number this will serve as your reference and proof that you voted. It is prohibited to take pictures of ballot. When I voted, they did not said anything against memorizing your ballot number, you may ask if you could write it down, but if they tell you that it's not allowed. You have the option to memorize it. And you can use it as reference against any anomaly that might happen while voting. 



The Comelec prohibits taking picture of ballots, in which any violation could result to imprisonment of more or less 2 years  according to the BEI who assisted me. And it also makes sense because it could be used for vote buying. Where politicians could demand proof that you voted for them in exchange for money. But these kind of politician will not have access on ballots. So I personally don't see anything wrong about taking note of your ballot number. 



Your ballot number will serve as reference and proof that you voted and who you voted for. 
Check your receipt if it is correct and report to BEI any discrepancy. 
Don’t leave the precinct if your receipt doesn’t reflect who you voted for. We admonish voters to fight for your right and that your v If your vote or receipt is not correct, DEMAND that it will be logged sa MINUTES(logbook) ng BEI or Board of Election Inspectors and the watchers will take note of it. 

In this video the Comelec gave guidance on the process that needed to be done if your receipt does not match the vote you cast on your ballot.

Please respect the teachers assigned as Bureau of Election Inspectors kasi volunteers lang din sila. Hindi nila control kung ano ang nangyayari sa loob ng voting machines. We aren’t breaking laws here, We demand a clean and honest election. The receipt is the most important thing here. It should reflect who you voted. Dahil ito ang gagamitin natin sa “manual counting” in case mag protest tayo. The cheating will be inside the voting machine kaya these receipts are our last defense. 
I REPEAT DON’T LEAVE THE PRECINCT IF YOU’RE RECEIPT IS WRONG!!!!! Dapat masulat ito sa logbook(minutes) ng BEI bago lumabas. THE RECEIPT IS OUR TICKET TO SALVATION. IT IS OUR RIGHT!

 I will give you a possible programming inside the voting machine, 

If(presidentvoted=Duterte && ikaw-ay-pang-anim-na-voter) then PLUS 1 sa boto ni Mar, tapos print out resibo=Duterte. 

If(presidentvoted=Duterte && ikaw-ay-pang-41-na-voter) then PLUS 1 sa boto ni Mar, tapos print out resibo=Duterte. 

So dahil nakita mo sa resibo na TAMA "daw" ang boto mo pero inside the machine ay MALI pala. Kaya kung itatapon yung mga physical na resibo, WALA NA TAYONG DEPENSA. Kaya napaka IMPORTANT NA BANTAYAN YUNG BOX.

Kung pwede huwag na muna kayo umuwi at mag DEMAND kayo na i-SECURE ANG MGA BOXES. 
Bayan natin nakasalalay dito. Since not everyone ay may Internet, make this OUR MISSION, OUR DUTY during election, 
1. Maaga tayong pumunta sa mga presinto. 
2. I inform lahat ang naka linya sa presinto tungkol sa RESIBO. Kung may discrepancies dapat ma log ito sa MINUTES(logbook) ng BEI. Tulungan natin kapwa kung ano ang mga dapat gawin. Let's DO IT! Educate them dahil hindi alam ng iba na may resibo pala. 

If any irregularities, harassment, or attack to supporter or candidate during the election period, 
Just Text: ALERT<space>CONCERN<space>LOCATION and send to any of the following mobile #.
