The Philippine Embassy based in US stated early Wednesday that all Certificate of Canvas (COCs) were already forwarded to the office of the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
There was also a reported delay in the transmission of COCs from abroad.
The Embassy revealed that the said delay was caused by four malfunctioning SD Cards used in the voting process in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
