This Saturday, February 2, 2013, the Commission on Elections will conduct full blown mock elections in two barangays in the 4th District of Quezon City, in the National Capital Region: Barangays UP Campus and Bagong Lipunan ng Crame. From seven in the morning until seven at night, real voters from 11 precincts – totalling 1,639 potential ballots – will troop to the polling stations and give the nation a preview of the May 13, 2013 National and Local Elections.
On a smaller scale – with fewer participants and shorter voting periods – the mock elections will be mirrored in the 5th District of Manila, and in Iriga City and the Municipality of Bato, in Camarines Sur; Dumaguete City and the Municipality of Sta. Catalina, in Negros Oriental; Cagayan de Oro City and the Municipality of Initao, in Misamis Oriental; and the Municipalities of Bongao in Tawi Tawi, and Buluan in Maguindanao, both in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. 50 voters from each of these places will be casting their mock election ballots, from 7 to 10 in the morning.
