JUST IN: Bongbong Marcos Votes in Batac, Ilocos Norte

Former Sen. Bongbong Marcos Casts Votes in Batac

BONGBONG MARCOS – The former Senator who is running for president cast his votes in Batas, Ilocos Norte, the hometown of his late father.

The campaign period ended last May 7 and today is the much-awaited election day for the May 2022 polls. Both local and national elections are taking place today and many Filipinos are already out to vote very early in the morning to avoid the long queues in voting precincts.

Several days prior to the May 2022 Elections, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) has made an online portal available so voters can already check their designated precincts. The poll body assured that there will be no failure of elections following the final screening of the vote-counting machines and their official sealing.

One of the presidential candidates in this election is former Senator Bongbong Marcos. He is the standard-bearer of Partido Federal ng Pilipinas.

Marcos Jr.’s presidential candidacy is undeniably controversial. It triggered the issues surrounding the regime of the late dictator, his tax evasion charges, and their family’s alleged ill-gotten wealth. Several petitions seeking his disqualification from the presidential race were filed at the Comelec.

The poll body junked all the petitions against Marcos Jr. Amid the issues, the former Senator is the frontrunner on results of surveys conducted prior to the election.

Recently, it was confirmed that former Sen. Bongbong Marcos has voted for the May 2022 Elections. Based on a report on Rappler, his voting precinct is in Batac, Ilocos Norte, the hometown of his late father.

Marcos Jr. was with his eldest son, Sandro Marcos, who is running as the 1st District Representative in Ilocos Norte and Matthew Marcos Manotoc, his nephew who is seeking reelection as the province’s governor.
