With delays from consulates, Philippine overseas votes still being tallied

The latest on overseas absentee voting for the Philippine midterm elections, particularly from the Philippine Consulate in San Francisco, where officials and staff are getting closer to completing the tally of 60 precincts under its jurisdiction – despite two SD cards malfunctioning.

One of the two replacement SD cards sent by the Philippine Commission on Elections or COMELEC was finally received on Wednesday, with the second one expected to arrive in San Francisco on Friday.

The latest clarification from the Philippine embassy in Washington DC is that they will not begin the “national canvass” for overseas absentee voting in America — until all SD cards from all 10 consulates in the country are physically there.

Consuls general and consulate representatives hand deliver those cards to Washington DC after their respective tallies are completed.
