55 thousand Bohol voters missed voting a president


TAGBILARAN CITY, May 11 (PIA)--Like what the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) predicted, voter turnout in Bohol went higher than projected, reaching 85.45%.

And, at least, for the position of the president, about 8.7% of the active voters either refused to pick among the six presidential options, over voted on the least or lost their votes to over-shading. 

There is no way however to prove if there were over over-voting or over shading. 

From the COMELEC official results, about 682, 608 from the 798, 768 registered Boholano voters participated in the May 9 local elections, thus 85.45%. 

But out of the votes of 682, 608 active voters for the position of the president, a good 55, 153 were uncounted for over voting, under voting or plainly leaving the choices blank or excessive shading which constitutes the 8.7% of the total votes cast.

Of the total valid votes cast, presidential pick Rodrigo Duterte (Partido ng Demokratikong Pilipino) claimed the biggest chunk in the vote pie with 310, 114 votes which constitutes 45.43% of the actual voters. 

Following him is Mar Roxas (Liberal party) who claimed 29.37% of the vote chunk. Roxas garnered 200, 544 votes. 

On third spot in Bohol is senator Grace Poe, who earned 68, 098 votes racking in 9.9% of the votes cast for the day. 

Fourth is vice president Jejomar Binay who got 42, 245 votes which make up for the 6.2% of the days votes cast. 

Meanwhile, 6018 Boholanos picked Merriam Santiago and this got her .88 % of the active voters share.

Whether there was really a substitution with the dead candidate Roy Seneres, the name still earned .06 % of the vote pie. 

Seneres had 437 Boholanos picking him or his substitute. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
