Senate hopeful, Atty. Glenn Chong storms the temporary Comelec headquarters in Pasay City on election day. He said that he lost his votes in six areas during the mid-term election. This includes his hometown, Biliran. Chong immediately acts out according to the complaints of his supporters. He’s currently out of the magic 12 at number 30 as per the initial unofficial tally.

Anomalies in 6 Areas
Chong said that his voters received their voter’s receipts without his name on the paper. Other voters in Las Piñas had the same experience like Senator Cynthia Villar who outruns Senator Grace Poe in the number one spot. This takes place in the cities and provinces of Cagayan, Biliran, Manila, Iloilo, Batangas and Cagayan de Oro according to reports.
Senatorial candidate Cynthia Villar said that her voter’s receipt did not match her actual voting list on Monday, May 13. In an interview, Villar said she was surprised when she saw a certain name of a candidate she didn’t vote in her voter’s receipt. However, the top senatorial bet admits that there is a possibility that she made a mistake while shading the oval of her ballot. This may not be the cases in Chong’s voters.
Undisclosed Details on the Election Complaints
“We are only going to say the places because I want the Comelec to come out first with the data,” he said. Chong meets with Comelec officials exclusively. Comelec pokesperson James Jimenez asks him to file an official complaint. Chong said his camp now drafts the letter and submits it to the poll body a day after the election.
The IT Community says that Comelec is the most unqualified operator of the Automated Election System. While Smartmatic is the grossly incompetent contractor for the past 4 elections. They warn the public that data tampering is now on-going. This is due to non-update on Comelec official website and the posting on mainstream media is only at 0.40%. Another Senatorial bet, Tito Casiño spearheads this via social media which is unanimous to Chong’s election grievance.
Message to Chong
Defeats are not necessarily the end of an advocacy. In most cases, it is the beginning. Doors are opened to him. Connections are made. Exposures continue. As a clean election advocate, he can very well serve the country using his own credentials. He did not become an accountant, attorney, and IT expert for nothing. The fight for the people must go on despite the loss in the Senatorial race.
