ON 2019 MID-TERM POLLS | Fewer voters witnessed election irregularities — SWS
September 11, 2019 , 05:39 PM

(SEPTEMBER 11, 2019) – Fewer Filipino voters said they personally witnessed election irregularities during the May 2019 midterm elections, according to the Social Weather Stations (SWS).

In the second quarter survey for 2019, SWS found 10% of Filipino voters personally witnessed vote-buying while 15% reports reading or hearing about it from a reliable source.

This is fewer compared to the June 2016 national elections survey which found 19% personally witnessed vote-buying and 23% read or heard about it.

 

 

Aside from vote-buying, SWS said fewer Filipino voters claimed they personally witnessed harassment of voters, flying voters, cheating in vote-count or ‘dagdag-bawas’, bribing not to vote, and violence on election day.

 

 

While the number of elections irregularities have dropped, SWS notes the portion of those who have witnessed vote-buying is highest in Mindanao at 26%.

This was followed by Visayas at 9%, Metro Manila at 6%, and Balance Luzon at 3%.

Meanwhile, the proportion of those who personally witnessed bribing not to vote are highest in Metro Manila and Visayas at 2%, followed by Balance Luzon and Mindanao at 0.4%.

 

 

When it came down to the problems encountered during the elections, the top complaint of Filipino voters had to do with the “very long lines”.

53% of the respondents encountered long queues in their voting precincts, while 35% said they encountered no problems.

The second quarter survey was conducted from June 22 to 26, using face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adults nationwide. (Katrina Ventura/JMF)
