Despite delays caused by malfunctioning vote counting machines and voter registration verification machines, voters in vote-rich Barangay Holy Spirit in Quezon City continued to exercise their right to suffrage.

Dr. Maria Noemi Moncada, Department of Education Supervising Official at the polling center, said voters waited tirelessly even when two VCMs bogged down after recording only a handful of ballots at the start of the voting period.

The 12-precinct voting center is located at the gym of the Barangay Holy Spirit Complex on Faustino Street, Isidora Hills, Quezon City.

Voters from two polling precincts of the populous barangay had to wait in line until past 10 a.m. before the contingency VCMs arrived to replace the malfunctioning ones.

“The voters really waited. No one left or went home. They were extremely patient,” Moncada said. “They stayed to exercise their right of suffrage. The glitches did not stop them from voting.”

Apart from VCM glitches, Moncada said malfunctioning VRVMs also stalled voting in most precincts in Barangay Holy Spirit.

She said nine out of the 12 VRVMs were not functioning, forcing poll workers to manually verify registered voters.

“The teachers had to do manual verification of registered voters since the machines encountered some problems. The fingerprint scanning was not working,” Moncada said.
