Namfrel QC resumes encoding after system problems

8AM – Namfrel Quezon City (QC) Chapter has resumed its encoding process now at Faura Hall after halting encoding operations last night.

Namfrel QC's operation quick count is also called Bantay Bilang.

Namfrel QC and other Namfrel chapters experienced software problems yesterday, which caused delays in their expected quick count.

The Philippine Daily Inquirer quoted Namfrel Chairman Edward Go as having said that he remains optimistic despite the slow count that Namfrel is encountering. “I'm still hopeful that by the end of Friday, we shall have covered 60 percent.”

Namfrel QC said that its system problems have already been fixed. It has submitted results to La Salle Greenhills, Namfrel’s national headquarters. Results for the senatorial race, however, have not been submitted as these can be obtained online.

Namfrel QC will release updated results at noon today. It first released results at 7PM yesterday.
