TARLAC CITY, Tarlac: President Benigno Aquino III has cast his vote at Precinct 175-A, in Central Azucarera de Tarlac School.
Voting has gone relatively smoothly at the school, except for when a paper jam prompted the Board of Election to change a Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machine ahead of the President’s arrival.
Aquino, who arrived at 9:20 a.m., cast his ballot after waiting in line for 30 minutes.
Two of the President’s sisters, Ballsy Aquino-Cruz and Pinky Aquino-Abellada, also voted in the same school.
Tarlac has a total of 739,526 registered voters, the fourth biggest in Central Luzon, according to the Commission on Elections.
The province has 1,229 cluster precincts in 480 voting centers in its 511 barangays (villages). CATHERINE S. VALENTE
