Senator Joel Villanueva cast his vote early in the morning of Election Day at the Bunlo Elementary School Bocaue, Bulacan.
Together with his wife, Gladys, Villanueva arrived at about 7:30 a.m. and joined his fellow Bocauenos in a long queue that took them an hour to finish voting.
The seasoned legislator shared that his voting experience was a bit longer than in previous elections.
“Voting took longer than our previous experience last election. This time, five precincts are mixed in just one classroom even if there are still two classroom buildings available. But other than the long queues, the whole voting process was relatively OK. We hope the Commission on Elections (Comelec) would make the next election season more bearable for our voters,” the veteran lawmaker said.
