Namfrel volunteers start encoding QC results

8AM - Namfrel Quezon City (QC) chapter received election returns (ERs) from 10PM to 12AM yesterday, said Wen Batocabe (IV AB-MA PoS), a point person for Namfrel QC media relations.

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

The ERs came from different voting precincts in QC and were delivered to the Manuel V. Pangilinan Center for Student Leadership (MVP-CSL) for Bantay Bilang or the quick count operations.

According to Batocabe, the Bantay Bilang volunteers have checked the ERs and have started to encode them.

System delays prevented the ERs from being checked and encoded faster, Batocabe said. Because of these delays, they started encoding at 8AM instead of 12AM.

By noon, Namfrel QC will be releasing updates. As of press time, they have not yet given partial and unofficial election results because these are still being encoded.
